About Ken Clark:
Ken Clark has been gardening all his life with the main focus on food production. He grew up on a farm and back then you relied on your own garden to get your dinner on the table.

When Ken was 12 his parents divorced and he had to take over all the major digging in the garden and his mum did the planting.

He now lives on Waiheke on a 850sqm section and produces food in abundance to feed himself and his wife. The beauty of Ken's food garden is that he has a wide variety of different fruit and vegetables for the entire year.
