Maker's bio

I'm been gardening since I was an apparently moody teenager 30 years ago. I've been writing for the Guardian on all matters grow your own since 2013 and teaching gardening since 2014. I edit The Organic Way magazine and have gardening columns in the press. My approach is very hands on and accessible and designed to debunk a lot of the jargon to make gardening accessible and wonderful for all. I am the author of The Climate Change Garden book.

Anne Betteridge reviewed: Polytunnel grow your own: productive, organic, year round food growing

"Loved the course and learned lots about what I can grow in my polytunnel. Kim was really keen to make sure each of the attendees had their questions answered and she carefully tailored the day to suit us all. She packed a lot in and wanted to make sure that we found growing our own produce as efficient and as fun as possible. I will go on from here with renewed vigour but much less overwhelm! (She was also kind enough to make sure my dietary restrictions were dealt with.)"

MRS MIRANDA HUDSON reviewed: Polytunnel grow your own: productive, organic, year round food growing

"I really enjoyed this course which I did in early March ready to tackle the new growing season, but I've learned that I will be able to keep growing through most of the year! It was very refreshing to see the mix of plants that Kim is growing in her tunnels and beds, rather than tidy blocks which I'm no good at. There's a lot to take in but it was all very inspiring. Thank you!!"

Angela reviewed: Polytunnel grow your own: productive, organic, year round food growing

"Kim is an excellent communicator and her passion for gardening more productively and in-tune with nature has given me many ideas for my own garden. I loved the fact that she catered for people with different levels of experience and gave everyone tips. It was a very relaxing day but my head was overflowing with ideas by the end of it. My window-sill at home is full of plants while I repair my polytunnel and I am very keen to try huegelkultur too. I would recommend this course to anyone with an interest in growing their own food and caring for the future of our planet."

Elsa Esteban reviewed: Polytunnel grow your own: productive, organic, year round food growing

"An amazing course fully packed of knowledge and that has helped us to break with the most common stigmas of planting and gardening by using common sense and observation. Learnt a lot about "no dig" and "mixed planting". Techniques we're definitely using from now on! We fully recommend it!"

Green Rocket Courses responded:

"Thank you Elsa. It was lovely to meet you both. So glad you enjoyed. Happy climate change savvy GYO. Kim"
