Skills, technical expertise and areas of interest:
My main area of interest is garden and allotment scale permaculture design. I have been a market gardener and have a specific interest in using annuals and perennials in combination to increase yield. I am also interested in the multi-functionality of small outdoor spaces and designing gardens that have a strong aesthetic as well as being productive.
I have 14 years experience teaching permaculture and have convened and tutored numerous courses. I am currently designing courses for Transition towns.
I am a parent and I am interested in exploring how we raise children for an uncertain future; compassionate and empathic parenting and home education.
Areas of Permaculture Design Experience:
