Born in Kingston Jamaica with roots in St. Elizabeth and Westmoreland, Ingrid Blackwood is a forester and environmentalist who received her education at the College of Agriculture and University of New Brunswick.
She offers consultancy services on environmental and customer service issues but especially enjoys working with children and civic groups. In 2011, with the support of volunteers from the Treasure Beach community, Ingrid successfully coordinated the children’s programme in the first staging of Two Seasons Talking Trees Literary Fiesta, and again in 2012.
Blackwood is a self professed “lover of nature and a tree hugger at heart” who participates in hiking, swimming, music, 5k benefit runs, poetry and journaling. She is also a fan of athletics.
