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.

Jeremy and his wife Kate run a community smallholding called Velwell Orchard in the Dart Valley in Devon. Jeremy also studies and teaches Aikido.
