Plot to Plate

This section reflects my interests in gardens, allotments, composting and cooking. I combine these with a book that I have written for Signal Books,  The Cowley Road Cookbook. You will find more information about it elsewhere on the website.

I was elected  Chair of Garden Organic in May 2016.

Allotments are a big part of my life.  I have had a plot on the Bartlemas Close allotments site for thirty years.

Through the Fund for the Environment and Urban Life I am supporting the Sowing New Seeds initiative led by Garden Organic, which promotes the growing of exotic vegetable crops in the Midlands.

I have been supporting a  documentary film on world wide urban agriculture  Plant this movie  as an Executive Producer. Narrated by Darryl Hannah its premiere was at the Portland Film Festival at the end of August 2014.
