REV On Air: We Are All Nature with Ecological Grower Poppy Okotcha
We are very excited to bring you today’s podcast episode with dear Poppy Okotcha! Poppy is an ecological food grower and an all-round green-fingered goddess. After working in the city modelling and getting involved in urban gardening, Poppy decided to uproot her life and move to Devon in the UK to spend her days immersing herself in all things nature-based. Poppy shares with us her life story as well as her core philosophies around ecology and gardening that we can all strive to learn from!
“There’s stats that explain that actually the area of land in the UK that is backyard (or front yard) gardens is greater than the amount of area that is currently nature reserved in England. So all our gardens combined actually cover huge vast swathes of land and they can offer an incredible opportunity for creating nature corridors and also for providing some sustenance to us.”
