About me, Katrina Wolff

How would you like to be growing the food you most love to eat, saving yourself unnecessary trips out to the shops. Instead, just wander out into your garden and harvest organic produce that is literally still alive. Garden to table means just that - perhaps rinsing off a little of the soil before you head to the kitchen to cook.

The question for so many people is this: 'Where do I start?'

I recommend a quick call to discuss your situation, and I can quite quickly recommend some options, no matter what size your garden. Beginners and advanced gardeners are all welcome.
