Growing at least some of your own food is one of the most empowering and life-affirming experiences out there, more so than ever with all the stressful things happening in the world right now.
My approach is low-cost, nature friendly, fun and totally climate change savvy. I have been growing food organically for more than 35 years and writing and teaching my down-to-earth, resilient approach since 2013. My adventures in the high hills of West Wales where I have experienced flooding, my private water supply running dry, and much more besides, means my techniques are tried and tested. Having gardened for free for The Guardian back in 2013 to see how low-cost food growing can in reality be, this also informs my resilient, popular planet-friendly approach today.
Want to find out from Kim how to grow fuss-free nature friendly edibles?
As well as editing The Organic Way magazine, I have gardening columns in Grow Your Own magazine and Country Smallholder and contribute regularly to a range of national publications including Gardeners’ World magazine on all things organic, thrifty and resilient growing. I was awarded the prestigious , Beth Chatto environmental journalist of the year award in 2022 by the Garden Media Guild.
I am the co-author of The Climate Change Garden book (being republished as an updated edition by Quarto Feb 2023) and I teach in person and online a range of different courses for everyone from the RHS, Humble by Nature and Garden Organic to Botanic Gardens, the Centre for Alternative Technology, schools and social housing trusts and food banks. I offer a wealth of wider experience and time and money saving techniques designed to empower and help you find a way of gardening that works for you and your plot – whatever the weather.
“Kim is an excellent communicator and her passion for gardeningAngela
more productively and in-tune with nature has given me many ideas
for my own garden. I loved the fact that she catered for people with
different levels of experience and gave everyone tips. I would
recommend this course to anyone with an interest in growing their
own food and caring for the future of our planet.”
