About the facilitator
Frank started gardening as a toddler in his grandparents’ allotment in Leipzig. A forest warden is what he wanted to become, but he studied architecture instead. After moving to rural Ireland and quitting his office job, he learned about pruning and grafting fruit trees. That was 22 years ago, and he hasn’t stopped since. By moving to Portugal 11 years ago he added citrus and olive trees to his repertoire. Frank lives with his partner and their daughter on a Quinta near Côja and runs Viveiro do Ribeiro, a small scale plant nursery.
