This week we get to meet Hannah, part of the Wiggly sales team. After leaving school Hannah read Zoology at Aberystwyth University, but it was her holiday job that inspired a career change. During her breaks from Uni she worked on an organic vegetable farm near her family home in Herefordshire where she picked up a host of invaluable skills and an insight into large scale vegetable production. Hannah says that the best part of her job was attending the famous Borough Market in London every other weekend to sell the farm‚Äôs organic produce. She even did a bit of ‚Äúceleb spotting‚Äù while she was there and her main claim to fame was selling a cabbage to Jamie Oliver! In fact she loved working on the farm so much that her next brush with education was to study for an HNC in horticulture at Pershore whilst working as a gardener.
Not only does Hannah work in the office two days a week, she also looks after the Wiggly garden and the infamous Wiggly cutting patch. She currently has plans to transform a shady area in the garden with native woodland plants and ferns and increase the variety of cut flowers grown for the Wiggly bouquets.
At home, Hannah‚Äôs garden is brimming with cottage garden plants, together with a raised vegetable patch and a newly created wildlife pond. In her ‚Äúspare time‚Äù she is also a keen apiarist and currently tends to four hives located at her parents‚Äô home. Not only is Hannah a ‚Äúbit of a whiz‚Äù in the garden her other passion is cooking and her homemade cakes LOOK (as we have yet to taste them!!) delicious.
