  • Presenter / Producer: Selina Chan

    In a previous life Selina worked as a librarian and hosted Book Chooks, a radio show for book lovers. Her other love is gardening and she's since had the chance to work as a gardener, managing to keep up her garden blogging alongside. She is an avid reader and writer, loves singing, and shares the garden duties with her chickens.

  • Presenter: Karyn Jones

    A firm believer in community and self-sustainability, Karyn has always had an interest in nature and keenness for gardening. A part-time teacher, mum to Max and wife to Pierre, Karyn jumped at the opportunity to join the Garden Planet team. As she puts it: We can save the planet one organic garden (or two...) at a time. Hear, hear!
