I am passionate about how we can be nurtured by nature. I want to share my knowledge of gardening and cookery so we can all become more connected with our green spaces, more aware of how to grow our own food and more confident about cooking for our loved ones.

Together let's...

Willow & Greene provided our community group with a first-rate workshop experience with an informative, interesting and interactive presentation by Kerry.

They supplied all the resources and support material including a very enjoyable buffet afterwards with their delicious home-made produce.  Kerry was extremely helpful, supportive and knowledgeable.

Overall Willow & Greene were extremely professional, incredibly accommodating and very user-friendly.
