Armando Raish, Managing Director, Treebox Ltd

Armando Raish began his career in architecture, finding greater fulfillment in landscape design a little later on. He moved to the UK from Australia in 2006, and decided to pursue his passion for urban greening by embarking on a new venture to start his own vertical growing company. Treebox Ltd was established in July 2009 and offers innovative growing solutions to both indoor and outdoor spaces.
Armando is currently developing a network of like-minded individuals who want to see positive change in our cities and communities, and through Treebox he hopes to generate a growing interest in sustainability issues surrounding urban living, our ecological impact on the earth and food production.
His other interests include passive architecture, jive dancing and his young family.
