About Us

I am Esther de Groot and passionate about all things that grow. Since early childhood I have grown vegetables, flowers and fruit; learning from my parents and grandparents. As an adult, teaching Geography at Secondary Schools, gaining horticultural training at Capel Manor College and growing veggies on my own allotment led me to founding The Really Green Gardener in 2016. Since then, I have been teaching children, young people and adults how to grow organically through clubs, workshops and online courses.
My focus is now on delivering excellent online gardening courses for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards as well as bespoke courses upon request.
The courses are fully supported, affordable, home based and designed to engage and inspire participants whilst learning an invaluable skill. They are also very environmentally friendly!
