About Foodscaper Central Coast

Meet Mat - Horticulturist & Foodscaper

I am a qualified horticulturist who is extremely passionate about growing healthy, delicious and seasonal, home grown produce for my family year round.

The feeling I get from harvesting, then preparing and sharing farm fresh quality produce from my own yard is just magical.

I began my journey growing my own home grown produce over 40 years ago when my grandfather gave me a tomato plant in a paint tin to look after. Little did I know that this single tomato plant would lead to a life long quest to plant, grow, harvest and consume.
