Tuesday Talks - Crispin Swayne

Crispin Swayne will be joining HTA for one of our Tuesday talks - 'Reconnecting Urban Dwellers'.

Crispin is the Big Daddy of Father Nature, or 'Fat Nat' as he likes to call it.  Having lived in Brixton for over 20 years, Crispin's love of gardening is matched by his keen interest in his community.

His happy childhood memories of learning to garden alongside his mother Carmel inspired him to start Father Nature in 2005 as a voluntary gardening project for young and teenage dads and their kids in Lambeth in collaboration with St. Michael's Fellowship, a local family charity.

Since 2005 Father Nature has grown alongside Crispin's personal mission to get local people growing together and having fun outside. He now works closely with young dads, local schools, Lambeth council and a host of like minded educational and growing groups to make Lambeth a flagship for innovative and sustainable community gardening projects.

Crispin is a qualified landscape designer with a City & Guilds Garden Design Diploma, and the Royal Horticultural Society Level II.  He is also an Accredited Capel Manor External Tutor and BTEC Adult Coach, will full DBS clearance.
