About The Garden Project - Sally and Leon Lyttle
A family gardening business
I am Sally Lyttle and I am the founder of The Garden Project. I have lived and breathed gardening and the natural world my whole life! I have studied traditional horticulture, organics, permaculture and garden design. I live with my very clever steel working husband Leon and our 2 children in the hills of the Bay of Plenty. We love living a simple life on our 2 acres of land. We have massive food and medicine and flower gardens, orchards, a natural swimming pond and a menagerie of animals that sustain us, keep us strong and show us meaningful connection to this land and our health. I am a fledgling potter, which I adore, Leon and my son Tom love forging and sailing and my girl May is horse mad!
It has changed our life being here and having space and the freedom to create all that we dream of. To share this with others through The Garden Project- our products, workshops, garden coaching and design consultations really does make us happy and feel fulfilled. I remember knowing very clearly as a young woman that life was too short and precious to waste in work that we didn't love, so this is us!
We really love what we do and feel good about making a living sharing our craft and expertise- The Garden Project
