These projects and charities are an expression of two of David’s most deeply held beliefs:

Namely, that gardening is fantastic for everyone’s mental and physical health and that protecting native wildlife is a responsibility we should all shoulder together.

David has two daughters with Adele Holdsworth—Alice-Rose Domoney, born in 2014, and Abigail Violet Domoney, born in 2016. He is a proud family man who loves sharing his enthusiasm for plants and gardening with his kids, which is one of the reason that his Cultivation Street campaign is so close to his heart.
