I’m about to start learning about beekeeping with my local community garden, Cordwainers Garden. Just waiting for the bees to arrive!

A tip from me...
Start growing your own vegetables – cheap, easy and tasty. You don’t need a garden, even a windowsill will mean you can start growing something.

A tip from me....
Take time to try and walk on some soil or grass everyday. It’s amazing how much time may pass and you’ve not really set foot on natural ground! From road, to pavement, to carpet..........
