Paul Pulford, a grey haired man in a checked shirt, stands in the roof garden at the Southbank Centre surrounded by flowers and plants.

With GoodGym, Grounded Ecotherapy and the Southbank Centre.

In this episode of the Carbon Copy Podcast Running Out of Time special, we join the relay as it makes its way through London. We reconnect with Ivo Gormley, founder and CEO of GoodGym, after he and a group of lively GoodGymmers have carried the baton all the way from Parliament Hill in North-West London, to the Southbank Centre in Southwark. We speak to Emma Nutland, Arts and Wellbeing Manager at the venue, and learn about the incredible rooftop garden there, which has been growing for over a decade thanks to the care and dedication of Paul Pulford and his project Grounded Ecotherapy. And we meet Paul himself who tells us a bit more about his journey from addiction struggles to star-gardener at the UK’s largest arts centre. 

Listen to learn more about the amazing impact that this urban-greening initiative is having on all those involved.
