Fiona Greenwold
Fiona GreenwoldDirector
Fiona has a botanical science background and worked at the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh. She also ran her own gardening business for a number of years before moving into environmental education.

Fiona has held a number of senior environmental education positions in North Tyneside before becoming a teacher.

Fiona left teaching to become the Education Officer for the Rising Sun Country Park and is a qualified level 3 Forest School Practitioner.

Bringing all her botanical plant knowledge, environmental and teaching skills to the plant centre Fiona can support our service to offer advice and help to gardeners especially those wanting to encourage wildlife into the garden.

Adam Greenwold
Adam GreenwoldDirector
Adam was trained in horticulture at the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh. Having spent time as the head gardener at a horticultural college in Norfolk Adam has been a DED (Dutch Elm Disease) officer, worked on gardens in Egypt, been an arboriculturalist and more recently managed historic park restorations for Newcastle City Council.

After leaving Newcastle Adam took on a small nursery in Blyth producing a wide range of plants but with a focus on herbaceous perennials.

It seemed a natural step from producing and selling plants wholesale to setting up Greenwolds at Royal Quays outlet centre.
