I spent a lot of my childhood in wellies in my parents garden learning about growing vegetables, compost heaps, climbing trees and eating fruit straight from the tree and bush. I continue this with my own children now, growing as much as we can at home and i'm a passionate believer that all children should have the opportunity to grow.
