Liz Zorab

Liz Zorab spent more than 20 years working with specialist housing charities and in community development, including setting up the first time bank project in the UK. An award-winning gardener, she gained an RHS Silver Medal for a community-led garden featured on BBC’s ‘Gardeners World Live’ in 2002.

A health crisis led Liz to turn to her life-long passion for gardening and growing food as a career. She now runs Byther Farm with her husband, Mr J, using permaculture practices with regenerative and instinctive gardening. On less than 0.8 acre, she grows over 80% of the food and drink they enjoy each year giving them food security, resilience and increased self-reliance. They also sell vegetables via a community supported agriculture model.

She enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, watching rugby and creative handicrafts and has a distinct dislike of housework.

Liz regularly writes for Permaculture Magazine, teaches gardening and self-sufficiency skills and  encourages thousands of people to take up their trowels and live their dreams through a vibrant YouTube Channel, Liz Zorab – Byther Farm
