My adult life was spent pursuing the dream; unfortunately, I hadn’t worked out what the dream was….

The corporate world was calling me; sales, marketing, administration, I tried it all, nothing felt right, none of it was fulfilling.

Although I had my first house with a garden in 1984, it was 2006 when realisation dawned – horticulture was going to make the dream come true.

In 2009 after training with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) I moved to Damson Cottage and my life changed completely, and the dream began.

In 2012 I moved to a new garden and now I am working to develop projects around the county. It is my passion to share with as many groups as I can the physical and mental benefits of horticulture.

Growing Food and plants for pollinators is the focus of each project.

So far, I have been lucky enough to be part of these projects:

  • Working with families in Sure Start children’s centres
  • Being part of the East Lindsey District Council (ELDC) community led Health and Wellbeing committee
  • Local growing projects in schools through the Food for Life campaign

Ihave been a contributor to the Soil Association www.soilassociation.org  and have appeared on BBC radio Lincolnshire www.bbc.co.uk/lincolnshire highlighting the benefits of growing your own food.
