If you’re an avid follower of the organic gardening community, the chances are you’ve come across Lucy Hutchings – also known as @shegrowsveg on Instagram. We’re excited that she’s joined our network of PlantGrow Champions to help us build our community of organic gardeners, showing them how to get started and what they can do to help the planet along the way.
Lucy is a garden writer with training in horticulture and garden design, and has a specialism in heritage and heirloom vegetable varieties – but that’s not always been the case! She started her career in fashion and for 8 years had her own couture jewellery label. But when it came to deciding whether to take the label to new heights or walk away, it became clear that it was time to let it go.
Throughout Lucy’s life, even when she was working in fashion, the one constant was that she grew food. For her, growing food is key to happiness, and you’ll most likely find her in her greenhouse at her home in Suffolk. In a time when our food is treated with chemicals, packaged up in plastic and is becoming more intensively farmed, Lucy uses her platform to show followers how easy it is to grow our own food without any harsh chemicals and insecticides and how we can become a little bit more self-sufficient. That’s why here at PlantGrow we’re happy to support her as she strives to explore innovation in food production around the world, find out more about Lucy’s journey by visiting her website – www.shegrowsveg.com/about
Why we’re happy that Lucy is a PlantGrow Champion
Lucy is a key influencer in the global gardening community and we’re delighted that she loves PlantGrow products enough to become a Champion. She’s passionate about eating in a way that’s best for you and for the planet, and we couldn’t agree with that more – which is why PlantGrow fertiliser products are 100% natural and eco-friendly.
By supporting Lucy as she delves into ideas like plant-based innovation and future-proof farming while keeping her home harvests thriving, we know we’re helping her to help others think about what they’re putting into the ground and into their bodies. As we grow our community of PlantGrow Champions, we can help everyone to do their bit to protect the environment.
