Ian’s story

Ian Kavanagh spent decades working in some of the most prestigious gardens in London, before deciding to find a job that was about more than just the money. Now he is a gardener trainer with our Putting Down Roots (PDR) service in London. Putting Down Roots offers people a chance to gain gardening skills, and horticultural qualifications that could lead to work, at various sites across the capital. Ian told us more while he and his trusty assistant (Milo the dog) lent a hand one garden in west London. This is his story.
