Charity Administration Manager
My biggest gardening success was after three years of loving and nurturing an olive bush - it finally produced a solitary olive this year. I'm hoping for more next year.
Business Development Coordinator
I help co-ordinate the development of Garden Organic's work across the UK, including increasing the delivery and impact of our range of services and projects, such as local food growing, community engagement and composting. My biggest gardening success was setting up an organic market garden in Cumbria. Three beds created so far, and many more to go!
Horticulturalist - Heritage Seed Library
With the HSL team, I love being a part of our heritage seed’s journey from seed sowing, nurturing young plants as they establish and thrive, before finally harvesting fresh seed for storage in the collection. At home my passion for history keeps me busy with a garden full of heirloom varieties, as well as keeping heritage breed hens, sheep and goats.
As a marketing executive at Garden Organic, I support the delivery of marketing and communications for the charity. No day is the same; one minute I could be editing the Organic Gardening Podcast, and the next, I could be chatting with our members at an event. I started gardening in 2021 and I'm proud to say I've created a green space full of flowers and vegetables that is loved by pollinators!
HR & Office Coordinator
My varied role sees me assisting with the organisational lifecycle of employees, office admin, events and customer service tasks. My biggest gardening success has been managing to grow something! I started at Garden Organic as a complete novice but now have a small herb garden and have grown strawberries and tomatoes.
