Deptford Community Orchard

Deptford community Orchard is to create a lush orchard in London, swathed in fruit and nut trees. Working in partnership with the planned horticultural college on site and the local community to plant, restore and harvest, whilst delivering skills and qualifications to the community.

Convoy’s Wharf Farmers & Growers Market

BRIEF : Shall We Keep It ? The 16.6-hectare Convoys Wharf site was once home to a royal dockyard founded in 1514 by Henry VIII. It is also the site of the historic Sayes Court Garden and the boatyard where the Lenox warship was built. Convoys Wharf represents an important opportunity to regenerate this site in South East London that has been derelict and inaccessible for many years. This part of Deptford has an incredible history, and needs to have a scheme that strikes the right balance between respecting and celebrating the cultural heritage and providing a much needed sense of community and jobs. It needs to reconnect local communities to almost 50% of the borough’s river frontage whilst providing London’s first public park that is open to the river

o To build a replica of the Lenox and repair and build other historic vessels in future. o To revitalise Deptford’s unique marine and maritime heritage. o To create education, training and employment opportunities in both traditional crafts and modern transferable skills o To support the creation of a maritime enterprise zone on Deptford’s waterfront. o To improve the waterfront environment. o To take vessels to sea, where feasible, to generate training, employmentand trading opportunities. o To support the restoration of Sayes Court Gardens. o To work in association with other organisations to address issues of social and economic deprivation in Deptford and encourage social cohesion

An area to deliver NVQ, RHS & City and Guild Qualifications in Customer Service, Retail and Artisan Skills Such as Bakery and Catering

Garden Designs

In my view gardens and landscapes have an uplifting effect on people, architecture and the even wider landscapes. I am fascinated by the structure and detail of gardens and pay very close attention to this when designing. For me design is more a matter of intelligence and appropriateness than inflicting a style. The gardens i create are as varied as their owners and locations.
