About Steve Garrett

I’ve lived in Cardiff’s diverse inner-city community of Riverside for the past 20 years. In 1998 I founded the award-winning Riverside Farmers Market  – which has since spawned three other successful farmers’ markets in Cardiff – and the Riverside Community Garden.  I’m a founding director of the Riverside Market Garden, a small organic vegetable growing project 10 miles from Cardiff, and received an Inspire Wales Awards in 2010 as well as being shortlisted for a Leading Wales Award in 2012.
