Patrick Howlett

Patrick has a busy schedule here at Festina Lente. He leads our team of gardeners as they maintain the Victorian walled garden and allotments, as well as grows plants for sale in our shop. He also runs garden tours for schools and community groups and maintains stock levels in our Garden Shop. Patrick also runs our series of garden workshops, sharing his extensive skills and knowledge of fruit and vegetable growing, garden planning and maintenance with the community, and provides gardening assistance to our day service users. His favourite part of the role is getting to work with so many different people, from within his team to the whole organisation and the public. In his own time Patrick enjoys keeping fit, loves music (and is searching for the perfect choir to join!) and travels as much as he can.
