Growing Wild has been espousing the virtues of nature since waaay back in 2016, when it started as a radio show. Presenter and producer Charlotte Petts is a big nature lover and seeks people out to help understand different environmental issues, to tell of their work, adventures and, moreover, to share their mutual love of the outdoors. There are (to name but a few) wild swimmers, mountaineers, allotmenteers, soil scientists, swift watchers, writers, painters, therapists, garden designers and even hedge enthusiasts. Nature connection a go-go.
