Although born and educated in Poland, 30 years ago I followed my heart and came to live in Kent. I brought with me a degree in horticultural science . This had helped me to enjoy a long career working in Kent's beautiful parks and gardens. I have been Head Gardener at the historic Cobham Hall near Gravesend, Head Ranger at Cobtree Manor Park near Maidstone and Parks Development Officer for Maidstone Borough Council. Being as much 'hands-on' as my role allowed, I managed numerous improvement projects and coached students and trainees from the UK and overseas.
I have organised events for the public and written and talked about 'my' parks and gardens. I write a regular garden advice column for a local magazine Gravesham and Medway Life.
I am a member of the Professional Gardeners' Guild and still do some hands-on gardening for a number of regular Clients in Medway.
