ProperEdges is a small rural business run by Jeremy Weiss. Jeremy learned many of his skills during his training with the Devon Rural Skills Trust whose aim is to preserve the ancient traditions that make the Devon landscape so special. Jeremy now works for the DRST as an instructor as well as teaching on hedge steeping courses for the Dartmoor Hill Farm Project. He also has a first class honours degree in Environmental Science which he hopes might come in useful one day.
Jeremy and his wife Kate run a community smallholding called Velwell Orchard in the Dart Valley in Devon. Kate makes quality hand made woollen clothes, click here to see her website. Jeremy also studies and teaches Aikido.
He loves hard work and fresh air, creating useful things that are beautiful, and doing a proper job. In his spare time he enjoys homemade pizza, cake, snooker and outdoor swimming.
