The people behind VegiVentures

Many wonderful people have joined VegiVentures on a part-time basis to lead and to assist. Here are brief details about the founder and his partner.

Nigel Walker

[Nigel Walker]

Brought up in Hertfordshire, Nigel left school early and as a teenager worked in Switzerland and then Germany. This formative experience gave him a love of travel and foreign tongues. He then trained in international hotel management and tourism and worked in these industries for a while. During a gap year in 1975 he discovered macrobiotics and Buddhism and was led twice to Machupicchu, but it was yoga that took over and for the next 7 years he studied and taught Sivananda Yoga. In the 80’s Nigel went back to catering, running his own veggie restaurant in Essex and teaching vegetarian cooking, while dreaming of his next step, VegiVentures. Nigel lives in the Norfolk village of Castle Acre (near Swaffham). He is passionate about organic food and gardening, sailing, and green politics.

Karen Harris

[Karen Harris]

Karen and Nigel are partners. She has enjoyed a varied career, ranging from catering manager to deputy chief clerk of a county court, and now Vegiventures! Her first experience of VegiVentures was from the inside of a thankfully water-proof tent in the Lake District. Amazingly this early taste had her volunteering her catering skills, and she now helps with many of the details vital for running a small business: strategy and goal setting, proof reading, storing VegiVentures kit, foot massages and general moral support. Karen is passionate about the great outdoors, poetry and quality vegetarian food, she also enjoys gardening and encouraging Nigel to take an occasional break!
