About the Climate-Friendly Gardener
The Climate-Friendly Gardener has worked as a landscape architect, tree officer, farm adviser, walk leader, and tomato taster, and gardened on many soils: alluvium, chalk, sand, clay, and the rubbish the builders have buried beneath the turf on new building sites.
She owes her knowledge of gardening, plants, and land to many people and organisations, including her parents and grandparents, biology teachers at school, Newnham College, Cambridge, Aylesbury College, Birmingham Polytechnic, Bangor University, the Royal Horticultural Society, WWOOF hosts, all her workmates over the years, and all the people who’ve let her work in their gardens.
She’s been a smalltime Wikipedia contributor for several years, but finally created a new page on climate-friendly gardening in 2014, and has to her own amazement almost finished writing a whole book on how to be a climate-friendly gardener (watch this space).
The Climate-Friendly Gardener still works part-time as a gardener who tries to be good for soil, water, wildlife, and climate.
