Fresh & Free Gardens

After taking a Permaculture Design certificate course in 2004, followed by Royal Horticultural Society Certification, Fresh and Free Gardens founder Ash Pridham sought work in the outdoors with landscaping companies in the UK and Canada. Ash had the privilege to work in everything from small kitchen gardens, modern contemporary spaces to large formal country estates.

Permaculture: The word 'permaculture' comes from 'permanent agriculture' and 'permanent culture' - it is about living lightly on the planet and making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come in harmony with nature.

Concerned about the overuse of chemical sprays for bugs, fungi, and weeds he witnessed Ash envisaged an alternative garden service: one that offers garden design and maintenance without the use of pesticides and herbicides and in so doing keeping gardens safer for families, children, pets and wildlife.
