Sean first became engaged with gardening when he was a teenager by his cousin, Betty. He helped maintain the family garden and changed it from a little patch of flowers into a productive garden of vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers. “I love scent in the garden. Even though allotments are for food growing we can still keep a patch for flowers and especially scented ones.”



Claire helped her grandfather on his allotment from an early age. The first vegetables Claire grew were radishes and was “so excited when I saw the first one grow”. When Claire first got her allotment she admits to being “a little over whelmed, but persevered and when I got my first crops I knew it was all worth while.” Claire likes to introduce at least one new plant on her plot every year.


Jonathan lives in a village in western Gateshead in the North East of England. His interest in foraging for wild foods began when his father taught him jam-making as a child. In 2009 Jonathan set about the task of being self-sufficient and will show viewers how to make the most from nature’s larder. During 2011 Jonathan expanded on his journey by introducing bees and chickens to his life.
