Reflections on Organic Growing
Claire Ratinon is an organic grower and writer, previously based in Hackney, now in East Sussex. She has worked in a range of roles from growing salad on a small organic site in Stoke Newington to delivering growing workshops throughout London. She is passionate about the act of growing plants – especially edible ones – and the potential for this to be nourishing, connecting and healing.
She has been invited to share her growing journey and experiences in talks for organisations including The Garden Museum, the Royal College of Art and Abergavenny Food Festival. She recently presented two features on Radio 4’s Gardeners Question Time.
