Darren was an IT Project Manager for 10 years and managed an array of key public-sector projects across the NHS and the Salvation Army. He was also a member of the British Army Medical Services for six years, where he earned two service medals.

In 2009 Darren and his partner moved into a garden flat in East London and, with no prior experience, renovated the 80-foot Japanese water garden. The result has since featured on the BBC and in various publications.

Darren branched out into terrarium designs in 2016 when he started Botanical Boys, and the company has been featured in several international articles. He has since taught hundreds of clients and feels he is making the City a happier place to live through his terrariums, which make the benefits of gardening accessible to everyone.

By combining the service offerings of bonafide hr and Botanical Boys, we can offer clients a means to enhance staff wellbeing through terrarium gardening.
