About Liam

Liam has been a keen gardener since the school set up their gardening plot two years ago and is always eager to get into the allotment and get stuck in. Liam is the self-appointed compost bin emptier and is always looking for jobs to do in the garden. His skills in weeding, planting and watering have grown over the years and his love of gardening always shines through.
