About your Mentor
About your Mentor
ARB Architect, Edward Dale-Harris believes we must look beyond sustainability and move towards regeneration, we have to change our destructive behaviour and do much better to protect nature as citizens of the earth and stewards of the land.

Ed qualified as an Architect in 2017 and has gained many awards for his design, commitment, vision, compassion, charity work, environm...
