Ruth bought a field in 2006 and has made a successful market garden there, selling vegetables through a box scheme. Ruth has been involved in various forms of farming, growing, land work, and other ecological projects since coming to live in Devon thirty years ago. She completed a National Diploma in Agriculture at Bicton College, but the organic growing is mainly self taught, by scaling up from domestic production. She is currently a member of The Land Workers Alliance Coordinating group, and has a particular interest in food sovereignty, and finding ways of making things a little bit easier for new entrants to agroecological farming, and growing.
