Helen Holder, dearest colleague and friend to all those in Friends of the Earth Europe, passed away on Sunday 28th August, after almost seven years fighting against cancer. Helen was a force in both our work, and our lives, and was part of Friends of the Earth Europe from August 2005, first as a campaigner against genetically modified organisms, and later as the coordinator of the Food, Agriculture and Biodiversity Programme. She was a brilliant campaigner and a wholehearted environmental activist. She will be deeply missed.
A slideshow of images of the time Helen spent on Gerald Miles’s organic farm in Pembrokeshire, Wales, in Summer 2011 is available on request. Many thanks to Gerald for this.
