James Foggin

After studying History at Newcastle upon Tyne, James ran away with a touring theatre company before moving to southern Germany in 1999.  Intending to travel throughout Europe, James instead completed a horticultural apprenticeship and ended up staying in Germany for over 20 years.  He worked initially in production horticulture before moving into maintenance.  He was Head Gardener at Landhaus Ettenbuehl for five years, subsequently managing a private estate of 40 hectares before becoming freelance.  A regular lecturer at the Koenigliche Gartenakademie in Berlin, James has been bringing German-speaking tours to the UK since 2014.
