Wade Muggleton

Wade Muggleton has been interested in permaculture for over 30 years, having travelled in Australia and New Zealand in the 1990s where the concept originated. He has subsequently been a college lecturer and a countryside officer in local government. He lives in Shropshire with his partner and two children, where their plot, Station Road Permaculture Garden, has been a demonstration site for permaculture as well as open under the National Open Gardens Scheme. In 2013, he acquired a field which allowed his orchard ambitions to expand. He now has a collection of over one hundred and thirty varieties of fruit trees and was featured on BBC Gardeners World in 2018. He has written for Permaculture magazine for many years and regularly teaches, gives talks and runs training sessions on a wide range of orchard subjects.

Anna Locke

Anna Locke was brought up in cities, and her journey into a deep love of plants began with a herbal medicine degree. She became fascinated by all of the plant names and the huge body of knowledge about their uses. She was enchanted by the Doctrine of Signatures, by all the poetry, folklore and beliefs about our plants. In 2000 she trained in gardening. Anna spent many years working as a community gardener in North London, designing gardens, planting fruit trees and teaching about many aspects of food growing. Since achieving the Permaculture Teacher’s Diploma in 2016, she runs workshops in person and online and helps develop a variety of local projects, such as restoring meadows and strengthening food networks.

She increasingly sees the significance of the home garden and community garden within the bigger picture of local food, forming part of a more updated and relevant way to organise food generally. Whilst on her private and community gardening journey, Anna has concluded, and firmly believes, that planting a forager’s garden at home is about the easiest and most enjoyable way to grow food. She hopes you will agree.
