Organic Wildlife Gardener


My passion for gardening began when I got the urge to grow my own vegetables. The idea of just stepping out my back & harvesting fresh organic food off plants I grew from seed was fascinating to me. However I did not know where to begin, so I signed up for a course at my local college to study horticulture. I was lucky to be tutored by horticulturist (and photographer for this website) Paul O' Flynn who inspired me further, to not only grow organically but to garden with respect for nature and go against some of the common practices we see gardeners doing in favour for a more wildlife friendly approach.

Once I finished my studies I set up a business THE GARDAN GURU. Being able to work outdoors & be amongst nature was great but more then that I wanted to change the way we garden. With every client I would encourage they set wildflowers & allow habitats for wildlife to flourish. Now the next step is to get the message further. This website along with our other social media accounts will be dedicated to inspiring us to reconnect with nature & share our love for the planet, beginning in our own backyards.
