Jason Lavender MSc
Co-Director (Job Share)
Jason Lavender grew up at Blackboys on the edge of the High Weald. Jason's work in the rural and environmental sectors had spanned both southern Africa and the UK before he joined the High Weald AONB Partnership in 2005 where, as Director (job share), he leads on national and regional partnerships and regenerative agriculture. Aside from his work for the High Weald Partnership and for more than 20 years, he has been a trustee for a private Trust that owns and manages 1,300 acres in Sussex and Kent.
