Heidi Morgan, Eden on Prescription Manager Originally trained as an Environmental Engineer, Heidi started her working life in the environmental sector. In 1998 she moved to Melbourne to work for VSO before taking up a position in Fiji in the South Pacific. It was during this placement as a researcher and campaigner that Heidi’s interest in the environment, nature and its links to well-being started. Heidi has worked at the Eden project for the last 7 years on nature based programmes and since 2016 she has been the Eden on Prescription Manager, setting up and running programmes for patients referred to the Eden site from the Primary Health Care service. She is passionate about enabling people to see themselves as the creators of their own health and wellbeing and the importance that nature-based activities hold within this space.
