Horticulture charity Perennial's - the UK's only charity dedicated to helping all those working in or retired from horticulture and their families - ever-popular Naked Gardening Calendar is back after a two-year hiatus. Two of its 'stars' join Rachael Forsyth on this week's podcast.
Baring all for the cause is Paul Greenyer, a landscaper based in West Sussex, a mediator and he is also training to be an expert witness with HortWeek's own Alan Sargent.
Fellow 'Grubby Gardener' is Gareth Wilson, expert witness, mediator, landscaping lecturer, mentor, and occasionally builds gardens for RHS at Chelsea and Hampton Court.
Partnership manager Kate Cooney who acts as an interface between business and trade associations and Perennial itself and she talks about how funds generated from the calendar supports the charity's work.
This week's innuendo-laden episode features hilarious tales of the 'making of' the calendar but also poignant reminders of the reasons Paul and Gareth were glad to overcome their inhibitions and "give something back" to the charity.
All profits from the sale of each calendar, will help Perennial to reach and support more people in the wonderful horticultural industry.
