Town/VillageLeicester
InterestsFruit and vegetable growing, particularly pumpkins is my passion. Wildlife, vertical, greenhouse and raised bed gardening are my specialities. I'm a trained Ecologist with two years experience of volunteering for Warwickshire Master Gardeners and a keen believer in organic and biodynamic gardening. Wherever possible I try to grow with Nature, encouraging a healthy wildlife friendly garden, using only recycled and upcycled materials. "From seed to plate" is my motto, since cooking and eating homegrown produce is the best bit of gardening. I regulary present the "Gardening Phone In" on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire Radio, but I'm just as happy to show anyone else how to get the best out of their garden, whatever the space or size, for growing fantastic healthy veg in the most organic way.

InterestsMeeting new people and sharing my growing knowledge with others. Encourage people (both adults and children) to "have a go" and we all learn new things together! I'm also very interested in community growing/allotments. I'm also keen to capture all the hard work on camera so that the ups (and downs) can be shared with others.

InterestsI love gardening and the benefits it brings of fresh vegetables and fruit, from the first planting of the seeds, through to picking, storing and cooking with the produce. I have studied horticulture at Brooksby college and have the RHS level 2 qualifications and have undertaken part of level RHS level 3. I would like to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with others.

Town/VillageHarborough district
InterestsI am particularly enthusiastic about involving families and young people in growing some of their own food, as well as being a Leicestershire Master Gardener, I am the co-ordinator of Grow and Pick (GaP) Harborough where we grow vegetables, herbs and fruit in gaps and unexpected places around the town, from street corners to the fronts of office buildings and care homes. We do a bit of guerilla planting on verges and elsewhere too, especially plants for pollinating insects. all inspired by Incredible Edible Todmorden, but on a smaller scale.
