Mark Diacono leads the Garden Team at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage - running the growing courses, giving talks and hosting events at River Cottage HQ and appearing in the River Cottage TV series.
Mark also runs Otter Farm, the UK's only climate change farm and home to orchards of olives, peaches, almonds and apricots.
By taking advantage of climate change to grow delicious low carbon crops that would normally be sourced from overseas, Mark hopes to revolutionise the way we think about growing and eating locally produced food. Mark's first book with Quadrille, A Taste of the Unexpected, was The Guild of Food Writers' Food Book of the Year 2011.
