Gareth Hurd

Head groundsman

“I probably have to admit to having an unhealthy love for green spaces. There’s nothing I enjoy more than tending and managing plants and I’m a bit of an environmental obsessive.

I discovered Clandon Wood when they advertised for their first full-time groundsman and the way it operates with The Natural Burial Trust really impressed me. Traditionally, working for wildlife doesn’t pay for itself but Clandon Wood found a brilliant solution through its sustainable burial method.”
