The Garden

About The Garden

I find gardening relaxing, and enjoy working hard or simply pottering about. I grow a range of garden plants and vegetables, some successfully and some unsuccessfully.

Recently, I started growing plants for resale to raise money for the charity Porridge and Rice that supports schools in the Nairobi slums, home to some of the poorest people in the world.
