I am currently exploring & applying a Permaculture approach to my family farm in the North West. Alongside this, I am documenting some of my design work to form a Diploma in Applied Permaculure Design, (U.K) which I will have achieved by this year's PDC!
I am passionate about farm-scale Permaculture, small-scale high-nutrition food production, trees & woodlands, community led projects, & healthful living.
Inspired by wild places & growing up on our small Organic farm, Following University I began WWOOFing in France where I worked on a number of projects, most notably an established Permaculture farm.
This inspired me to take my first PDC in the UK with Aranya, Chris Evans & Looby McNamara (designed visions). In 2010 I returned to them and successfully completed a 'Training of Permaculture Teachers course' & did some apprentice teaching on PDC's in the UK.
I have been teaching Permaculture since 2010, in that time I have been working with community groups, land owners & individuals teaching workshops & offering Permaculture design consultancy to those who want to learn how to use permaculture to improve the eco-efficiency of their landscapes, work & lifestyles. I've also been priviledged to host the annual All Island Permaculture Gathering & be a part of the steering group for that wonderful event!
I use an unusual & creative teaching style I explore Permaculture through interactive action learning, challenges, hands on practical projects, investigation, reflections & games!
