Experience, skills and interests
Skills, technical expertise and areas of interest: 

Since starting my permaculture learning journey I have completed the following courses/certifications:
PDC with Aranya at Sustainability Centre in 2011
RegenAG with Darren Doherty - 2011
Holistic Grazing Management with Kirk Gadzia - 2011
Training of Teachers and PTLLS with Aranya, Hannah Thorgood and Jan Mulreany in 2012

Currently studying with Gaia University for Masters in Integrative Social Design

My areas of interest are fairly broad ranging. As we live on a smallholding I am interested in pasture management, farm to table food systems, edible landscapes, mushroom propogation, no dig vegetable gardening, growing herbs for health and healing, and integrating animals in a permaculture system.

I am also very interested in the social side of permaculture and in this regard I have worked on setting up 2 eco-education projects, a community association in our local area, I run seed swap events and open days for the public from our smallholding. We run Introduction courses, small holder courses and host volunteers interested in permaculture, so people care and education is an important part of what we do.
In addition to the above I am also a certified life coach.
