Meet The

Gardeners

The Garden exists thanks to around 120 (and growing) volunteer collaborators. Some of us are core resident staff, some part-time,
some remote contributors and consultants.
The largest proportion are wholistic healthcare practitioners.
Our little introductions are below so you can virtually meet us
and get a feel for the team.
More will be added here as time permits.
