Ben is a mechanical designer and maker with a degree in Natural Sciences, driven by a love of finding cunning solutions to interesting problems. One of the founding directors of the UK’s well-known heritage seed company ‘Real Seeds’, he spends part of his time each week running the company.  The rest of his time is spent designing and making things.
