I am passionate about the importance of local, organic food and people being able to grow their own produce. My services include being able to design/create/make not just a veggie patch (although I can do this) but a whole edible garden. I will be showing tools I like to use in the organic veggie patch such as Asian cultivation tools (ho mi's) and broad forks, as well as giving soil blocking demonstrations--including the right soil composition to use.
I have made a lightweight, moveable chicken dome for small scale egg production out of pipe that I will be exhibiting with 4 chickens inside.
My past experience includes sustainable/organic farming internships and connections with AllSun Farm and Gundaroo Tiller (NSW), OldMill Rd (NSW), Grown and Gathered (Vic), Jonai Farm (Daylesford, Vic), Taranaki (Vic), Milkwood (NSW).
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Sustainability through Swinburne and I am happy to talk to patrons about how to access this course, its pros and cons and whether it would be suited to them.
