Gardening is my future.
It’s time to do what makes me happy, full-time.
For me, it’s gardening. Mentally, physically, and yes, spiritually too.
That being the case, I am closing the door on Andy Johnson Media, and opening a whole load of possibilities as I develop my gardening business, Dig Your Scene.
After 17 years with the BBC, I left in 2012 with no plans. I have never regretted leaving, voluntary redundancy enabled me to take some time, reboot and start afresh.
Over the last eight years I have met and worked with some fantastic people. I have loved using my expertise to help others when it comes to presenting in front of an audience or getting prepared for media exposure.
My happiest times have come when I was in front of an audience myself, hosting events – all those live broadcasts did come in handy!
We are living through the most challenging and unsettling times. I furloughed my media business, as all of my work had been in rooms with people not via a computer screen.
In the meantime, I have been out in all weathers working for my gardening clients. Clearing ponds, developing borders, planting bulbs, and realising, this is where I want to be.
If I can help any of you, your relatives or friends with their gardens please give me a call on 07889 094949. You can contact me here on Facebook and I am @DigScene on Twitter.
A huge thank you to everyone in the amazing Manchester business creative community for your help and support, and to all my clients.
It has been a blast.
Right, where did I leave that spade?
