An RHS qualified gardener, I have lived and gardened in East Dulwich for 20 years.


Since 2005 I have been running gardening courses for beginners from my own garden. How to Garden (6 sessions) covers how to create a garden with colour and interest all year, basic techniques and soil improvement. Begins each March.


I also offer one-off bespoke sessions - I come to you - to give advice, ideas and talk through options for your garden.


Since 2000 I have taught gardening in local schools and have recently  qualified as a Level 3 Forest Schools leader, running sessions for primary age children in local woodland.


I have an allotment and am convinced that gardening and learning to grow food is an important skill which can transform spaces and lives.
