He has written for Permaculture magazine and has been organic and permaculture gardening for over fifteen years.  He has worked in community-based charities for that long too, including as Chief Executive of The Orchard Project and Head of Activism at Friends of the Earth.


We live in suburbia in Warrington, in the North-West of England, in an endlessly busy family household, with four kids, a dog, several hens, stick insects, fish … and a garden.

If you’d like to discuss a garden project or community initiative with us, we’d be happy to have an informal chat.

Just get in touch.
