We are a small team of people passionate about our local natural environment, guided by a board of trustees, supported by a small army of volunteers and a large crowd of supporters.

Our staff

Meet our Management Team:

  • Farm & Estate Manager – Justin Cox
  • General Manager – Izzy Warren
  • Financial Controller – Nicki Hawkins
  • Countryside Manager – Chris Lingard

Most of our team are based at Occombe Farm, but we also Rangers and gardeners located at Berry Head National Nature Reserve and at Cockington Country Park. We are a team of about 25 permanent staff working across the Trust delivering Land Management, Farming and Contracting, Maintenance, Engagement and Events, Communication and Awareness.


The Trust could not care for the places we all love without the invaluable help of our volunteer teams. There are lots of interesting volunteering roles within the Trust and we really do need your help to care for and maintain the many beautiful woodlands, parks, farmland and coastal spots across Torbay that include Occombe Farm, Cockington Country park and Berry Head.

Volunteering is a great way to meet new like minded people, share your passion for the natural environment, learn new skills and be a massive part of our local conservation community. Join us!
