Jo has worked at Boot Up! since the beginning in 2009. Jo is a traditional carpenter who works with natural materials and was instrumental in building the straw bale, cob and wood classroom at Boot Up! Other construction projects on-site include sheds, a tree house and a greenhouse made from recycled windows. Jo has a degree in 3D design and worked on the construction of the Eden Project Biomes using high ropes and climbing gear. She has also sailed the Antarctic and was part of the team who developed the Eco-Park at Mount Pleasant, Porthtowan.
