“I am passionate about growing food that is ‘full of life’, both nutritious and abundant. My community garden involvement has taught me the pleasures of learning, working and sharing together. Food resilience is our common goal.

To grow a successful garden, one begins with an intention to ‘care’, moves on to learn growing techniques and develop the skills of observation, and follows on towards sustainability and ‘wellbeing for all’. I am here to support with that.

The workshops I have chosen to teach incorporate my experience of permaculture applications, along with my knowledge obtained through growing organically.”
