Paul Sweetman

Board Of Directors

“By growing your own food you can animate this connection which is likely to drive more sustainable decisions on what you buy and from where. “

Paul is a business owner whose job is made easy by having a brilliant team of people working for the organisation who are passionate about delighting our customers at every opportunity. Paul has over 10 years of growing experience, though still refers to himself as a novice grower. Paul believes making the connection to how and where your food comes from is very important in making more informed choices about what we eat. He is always trying to strike the balance between work and living the good life! Pauls two 9 year old twins constantly ground him and remind me about what is really important. The best advice he says he can give people, is grow what you love to eat, you will always find it tastes even better when you grow it yourself.
