About the Boss

Hi there, my name is Martyn.

Originally from the uk.

I joined the British Royal Marine Commando’s at 17, this is where the work ethic comes in.

I started gardening with my grandparents over 30 years ago.

After the Commando’s I did a few different jobs but always came back to the garden. In 2001 I started a garden maintenance round in the uk and was very fruitful, during this time became a qualified Arbourist, I also trained with the crew at an old Victorian Kitchen Garden called “Auderly End” in Cambridge UK (it used to feed kings and Queens. This was where I learned the best practices for growing food organically in this kind of climate.

I was able to emigrate here in 2009 to persue my dream job at Outward Bound NZ. It was during this time I fell in love with Wanaka.

I quit the job and made the move. You can see what I’ve been growing at wakakawillows on Instagram or Facebook over the past 8 or 9 years.

Hopefully I’ll get to know you and your garden soon.

Regards, Martyn Sinkinson.
