Karin Chipulina

I have always liked being outdoors. As a child of a Swedish mother, we spent many summers near lakes and woods. While working as an Art therapist I started developing the grounds in my children's school. From there I worked in various community gardens and now work as an outdoor community development worker in Edinburgh. I worked for Grounds for Learning,studied herbalism with grass roots remedies for two years and got back to art work using natural materials during Covid. 

Through my present work I have developed sensory gardens for people suffering from dementia,developed other community gardens and generally help communities to develop and use open spaces
