About Bethan_Garden & Forget Me Notts
Gardener, Florist, writer and creative. Urban Food Grower and Farmstart researcher for Nottinghamshire.
I wanted to start a business that had a more organic and local approach to gardening so in 2020 I founded Forget-Me-Notts. This is not just about flowers, this is about good quality food, living more sustainably and being a better, slower, consumer.
Aims and focus for 2024
- FarmStart project (with the Urban Agriculture consortium) across Nottinghamshire
- Workshops, Talks and training for groups and societies
Why focus on flowers?
The reality is that people in the UK pay more for flowers than they do for organic fruit and vegetables. See my upcoming substack (release Jan 2024) about my experience in food and growing.
As consumers we need to question where things come from and how we can have a more sustainable approach.
Originally from Wales, I grew up surrounded by the beautiful Welsh mountains. This wild and dramatic landscape continues to have a huge influence on me and my work. It means I have an unashamed love of Castles, Woods, Rocks and Nature.
