Alessandro is an Italian tattoo artist who turned his urban London backyard into a thriving urban garden. Coming from a small town in regional Italy and inspired by his grandpa, Alessandro created his urban oasis to help reconnect with nature.
Today, he is known as Spicy Moustache and has built successful social media channels as well as launched his own line of chilli seeds – all while maintaining his extraordinary garden. In 2021, Alessandro was able to grow enough fruit and vegetables from his urban garden to predominately sustain him and his partner for several months. He shares helpful gardening tips and tricks, educating his followers about how to grow food in an urban environment and its benefits to the environment and broader sustainability practices. Alessandro has worked with brands including Vans, NatWest and the BBC and is publishing his first book ‘Rebel Gardening’.
