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
