Laurence has bred and kept poultry for about 20 years both as a back-garden hobby and for exhibition, successfully showing at National level. In 2010 he launched the Haynes Chicken Manual, the perfect reference guide to keeping chickens in the garden.
A keen kitchen gardener, Laurence has a good working knowledge of vegetable growing and takes time to extol the virtues of a healthy lifestyle and the benefits of ‘growing your own’ and has recently ventured into wine and jam making as a way of using excess fruit crops, without the addition of artificial additives.
During the day, Laurence is the Food information Executive at www.weightlossresources.co.uk responsible for the integrity of the nutritional data available to members and the formulation of nutritious and interesting recipes.
