Michael is passionate about organic fruit and vegetable growing, and has a keen interest in ecology, the environment and biodiversity.

  • "Michael gave a very interesting, interactive, informative and engaging presentation to the children. It was the first occasion that many children had heard about how to grow vegetables and the care they needed. He explained clearly why things had to be done in such a manner. He answered all of their queries in a way they understood. As a follow-up, each child wrote an account of their experience, and included how much they had enjoyed the session. Michael gave all the children a strawberry plant to take home & each was received with great enthusiasm."
  • "The children always love these visits and find Michael very interesting and have always lots of questions for him."
  • "The children had a great day and we have a lovely raised bed garden as a result of this visit."
  • "Michael was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed his visit." - Ballymacarbry NS, Waterford
