Hey! We are Chris and Jack…
With a combined 20+ years of growing food we have made every mistake out there.
Chris went from radio presenting to urban farming, and then on to turn a field into an off-grid farm that grew and delivered 4,500 veg boxes in 2 years.
Jack took some time off from being an electrician and whilst travelling got inspired by permaculture farms across the world. He then built Jacks Patch a 1/4 acre market garden with a beautiful symbiosis between nature and food.
They are both now committed to helping people grow their own food.
The academy has given me the confidence to turn an allotment into a farm that I will build a business around. The knowledge I have gained is invaluable.
I love being a part of the academy community, there is always someone around to help when I have a question and the webinars really help at the right time of the year.
Being part of the academy has given me such confidence in growing food for my family. It has given me other skills too and helped me to put out more social media posts about growing.
