Michael Self 

Mike is always enthusiastic about our rural heritage, he’s a practical kiwi bloke who gets things done, tells a damn good yarn and is at home pretty much anywhere his feet can find soil. 

From headquarters in Inglewood Mike now runs one of the country’s longest surviving independent television companies making regular gardening and rurally themed television shows. You have to take your hat of to a man who’s put over 1000 TV shows to air. 

His experience along the way as a baker, secondary school teacher, commercial nurseryman, environmental activist, organics tutor and actor show he can turn his hand to most things including initiatives like founding the Taranaki Fringe Garden Festival and being a stalwart of Television Taranaki back in the day.
