I live with my husband Julian who is a Scientist at the University of York. I work as an organic gardener and I am interested in Permaculture and sustainability. My aim is to learn how to live in harmony on this wondrous planet. I enjoy growing and cooking food to share with family and friends, and love to meet new people from all walks of life. My favourite occupation is to be immersed in nature, working at my allotment or reciting latin plant names while exploring a beautiful garden. For me, my home is my sanctuary and I like my guests to take the opportunity to relax and unwind while visiting this peaceful and historical corner of Yorkshire.
