This book guides on starting that process, however and wherever you live in the world. It aims to inspire, educate and encourage a process of change.

About the Author

Tom's passion for plants began when he restored an organic coffee farm in Tamil Nadu, south India. This honed his interest in sustainable and organic issues and on his return, Tom joined Europe's largest garden restoration project at The Lost Gardens of Heligan. He has also restored two walled gardens in Dorset. In 2000 he became Horticultural Director (Designate) at Heligan. Tom runs a horticultural consultancy advising clients on organic methods of horticulture, permaculture and sustainable land use. He has written a weekly column - 'Kitchen Garden' - for the Saturday Times and a monthly column for Cornwall Today. His work appears regularly in publications such as Gardens Illustrated, Saga Magazine, Hortus and Country Smallholder. His books include 'Heligan, A Portrait of The Lost Gardens' (Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 04) and 'Trees That Shape The World' (Quadrille, 06). In 2006 he lectured at the Davidson Horticultural Symposium in the USA and he has presented numerous horticultural DVDs. Tom lives in Totnes, Devon.
