Colum Pawson

Sustainable Horticulture Trainer and Gardener

Colum assists in managing the growing areas around Schumacher College and teaching our horticulture students. Born in Glastonbury, Somerset, Colum admits he is rarely happier than when in a muddy field.  He has run a number of small agriculture businesses and also worked as a freelance horticulture consultant.  He has run a market garden, worked with community supported agriculture, spent a year as part of an intentional community at Radford Mill, near Bristol, and WOOFed (worked on an organic farm) his way around France and Spain. His spare time is spent walking with his wife and two children, singing and improving his unicycling.
