Charles graduated from Cambridge in 1980 and then started an
organic, no dig market garden. He is self-taught and learns from
observation at home and abroad and is trialling new methods all the
time. He teaches, writes and grows vegetables for sale, has seven
books published and seven films on his Youtube channel.
My approach to teaching:
It's about stimulating pupils to be excited about what they can
create, using the principles and methods I explain so they can work
out their own best approach in the garden.
What inspires your own work?
My inspiration is the growth of plants showing me the life and quality of soil, and the possibilities of creating beauty in a vegetable garden, ornamental as well as productive.
