Sarah Wint

Sarah is creating The Daisybus Gardens of Wellbeing in the spirit of collaboration with Gaia, in the furthest reaches of West Wales (open March-October).  She believes in the joy of playing in the dirt, rather than horticultural dogma, and in 2015 travelled the country in her old VW camper collecting stories about how gardens have affected peoples’ lives before writing a book about it (get a copy here).  When she’s not gardening she likes to lose herself in the poetry of Mary Oliver and May Sarton.

Simon Smith

Simon Smith is a peculiar mix of father, husband, teacher, poet, nature writer and angling writer. Living on the south Wales coastline, he spends far too much time working, not enough time fishing and hill walking, and drinking more red wine than can possibly be healthy. Read his blog here.
