"I first became a professional ecological gardener because I saw it as a way I could actively work to have a positive impact on the environment and society. It is time for gardeners and land managers to help lead the way in regenerating ecosystems and adapting to climate change"

"Sid has designed a wildlife friendly garden and then created it for us. We are so happy with the results which include an edible woodland which the wild birds and we are now enjoying. Sid is very productive, knowledgable, reliable and enthusiastic" Bea, Falmouth

The Wild Edible Garden

A short video tour of an edible forest garden I created. The garden mimics the structure of an open woodland, combining vertical layers of edible and useful plants. Under-sown with a wildflower mix and including artistic wildlife habitats.

'We have been blown away by the creative journey Sid has taken us on. Our outside space is now an ever-changing, stimulating landscape to get lost in every time we go outside. Last night we all foraged for leaves and tempura'd what we found in situ whilst the bees, beetles and bats foraged around us. It's not a garden; it's a new way of life for us. We started with the idea of creating a meadow, but on the way Sid changed us and our understanding. Now there are numerous habitats, sequestering carbon, fostering a palpable increase of diversity of species, that feeds us sustainably as well. Couldn't recommend Sid's vision highly enough. He has a joyful approach to plant and ecology geekery that is infectious. Grab his expertise and passion before he gets famous!' Dr E.J
