Cynneth Bonanos

wannabe farmer

I was born and raised in South Africa, by an English mother and Greek father.  I spent most of my life in the city of Cape Town.  I have a background in architecture and worked in the industry for a few years before moving to the UK. With a recession in full swing, I couldn't find work in the architectural industry and ended up working for a company designing printed materials.  Since then I opened my own business and have been running it for the past 5 years.  I started off growing vegetables in my back garden but didn't have enough space to grow everything I wanted and have since rented an allotment to expand on what I was doing at home.  I hope to one day have my own market garden here in Gloucestershire.
