Farmer and Grower Board Member
Kate started Grown Green @ Hartley Farm in 2010, a 3-acre market garden growing salads, veg and herbs to organic standards, following a two-year Soil Association Horticultural Apprenticeship. The market garden is on rented land and started from scratch and Kate is very interested in enabling more new entrants to find the training they need to start veg-growing businesses.
Kate has worked on the Soil Association's Future Growers programme as well as on research projects looking at Access to Land. She is currently Chair of the Organic Growers Alliance CIC and runs a local organic growers' group around the Bath and Bristol area.
