Julie has a knack for entertaining, and creates vast platters of salads, cooks delicious casseroles, and makes lots of preserves.

When she's not in the kitchen, you'll find her sowing seeds or on the potter's wheel.

Lewis manages the marketing for Castle Rock Brewery, and is also part of the small team that created Traffic Street beers. He loves to experiment with growing veg, and hankers after a small Japanese-style garden.
