Chris Smith (co-Chair)


Chris is Co-Chair of the charity and has been gardening for 50 years. His horticultural interests have been many and varied over that time. An adventurous gardener by nature, he was converted to exotics in 1993 by Christopher Lloyd and been growing Cannas, Bananas and Gingers ever since. More recently he’s been interested in the new perennial movement. Chris likes ornamentals and rhizomatous plants as well as exotic medicinal and culinary herbs and vegetative propagation and supports the Community Gardener’s activities in these areas in the greenhouses and around the garden.

Chris leads the Border Workshop and the Greenhouse Exhibition Groups as well as managing all the fire on the site and training our firemasters. He also leads Community Baking and the Pizza Team.

Chris has a background as a senior manager and entrepreneur in telecoms and retail and is also a qualified teacher.
