Meet our gardeners

Our gardeners are special folk. Their job is to nurture, ensuring the plant itself and its environment is healthy. We use our own seed bank as we believe this makes for plants most suited to our environment here in Derbyshire. We use traditional farming methods as it makes sense to rotate our growing beds annually and we combine wisdom from our many seasons of gardening, creating active composts to feed the soil from our own plant materials; we make our own biodynamic garden preparations from our natural materials which we spray in the Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Our aim is to grow the healthiest of plants, always.

“The harvest is a special time every year. Especially when you have followed the calendula growth from the very beginning. Each year we have new seasonal workers with very different personalities. The garden becomes the sum of every person who has worked here.”
