paul richens
gardens advisor

Paul has been a gardener and worm-botherer since his farming parents gave him his own plot at the age of three.

Since then he has worked as a scientific photographer at The Natural History Museum; a video producer and director in the US; and an account manager in Brentford. His green fingers have enabled him to grow organic vegetables in the small spaces his London accommodation has allowed.

He was Vice Chair for the Brentford Recycling Action Group, which included teaching good practice composting and worm farming in an attempt to stop people throwing away fertile soil.
