Charles Hooper

After a successful career in advertising spanning more than 20 years in both Australia and UK, I took the decision to completely change my life follow my passion for design and horticulture. I graduated from Greenwich University with a 1st Class Honours BA in Landscape Design in 2005.


I am also the founder of Forest Garden Shovelstrode, a woodland eco-retreat in Sussex. We teach people different ways of living more self sufficiently and lowering their carbon footprint via the many woodland craft courses that we teach, and by example with our highly productive Forest Garden.  We also offer luxury camping accommodation in traditional yurts and rustic log cabins within and ancient woodland.
