Spicy Moustache: Tattoo artist turns London backyard into urban food forest

Tattoo artist and nature guardian Alessandro Vitale, aka Spicy Moustache, is teaching urban gardening skills to anyone and everyone who wants to learn how to tend a garden whether you live in a city or in the countryside.

After moving to London with his girlfriend seven years ago, the Italian-born tattoo artist found himself missing a connection with nature.

Having relocated from a small town near Venice and having been taught everything to do with gardening and nature from his grandfather, Alessandro Vitale felt inspired to create an area in the backyard of his small London flat where “soil and living creatures could coexist giving a real sense of nature” and allowing he and his girlfriend to “disconnect from their daily routine”.

In addition to his day job and maintaining his garden, Alessandro Vitale’s teaches gardening skills via his Spicy Moustache YouTube channel and his launched his own line of chilli seeds.
