Mary is a reformed internationally acclaimed landscape designer who launched her career at the Chelsea flower show in 2002, being the youngest contestant to win gold. The story of which was made into a 2016 movie called “Dare to be Wild”. 

Episode 114

She is a bestselling author, inspirational speaker, occasional television presenter and founder of the global movement “We are the ARK”, a practical groundswell movement who’s aim is to shift the environmental game in nature’s favour. 

“The time for gardens as canvases for our creative pleasure is over. Everything must change and if we are to save the planet, then we must start with our own patches of it. It’s time to reimagine our work as gardeners, to become leaders in the race to save our beautiful planet, to save ourselves.”

We had the privildege of recording this episode in person, it was truly inspiring, chilling and brilliant. Mary is wonderful!


Lots of Love,

Dave & Steve
