Gardening is a family activity that can be done in the back yard, on a balcony, in a community garden or at the local botanical gardens. It’s a wonderful way to connect with your children and teach them about nutrition and sustainable living!

About us (Author)

Bringing ourselves closer to nature, and passing on knowledge about how best to practice daily beneficial activities, to create a more sustainable environment for both humans and creatures to thrive in.

I am passionate about working with people who believe in optimising our health & wellbeing, both mentally & physically, as well as the health of our ecosystem. I focus on individuals with passion and determination for a brighter future, and who seek reliable and insightful assistance to transform their vision into reality. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Graphic Communication, and throughout my whole life I have been eager to take complex concepts and relay them in accessible ways to reflect meaning and purpose.

These last few years in particular have been eye-opening in many ways, really exposing our vulnerability. But I honestly believe that there are so many valuable opportunities in crisis. The national lockdowns have produced more awareness to transparency, the importance of spending more time in nature, and to increase our connection to the source of our food.

If we all embark on a journey to take even the tiniest of steps towards a more self-sufficient life, the combined positive impact will be much greater than we all thought was possible. I’d like to help you believe in yourself, as a creator of beauty within bio-diversity. An acorn of an idea really can become an oak tree!

My career is my lifestyle. For the last 5 years I’ve worked within the Horticultural sector, training in the care and maintenance of all plant life and encouraging clients to see our ideas materialise in their spaces.
I co-created Sow Fresh to provide attainable and convenient methods for us to grow more of own food, to better nourish ourselves and the planet. I fully believe in the phrase ‘food is medicine’, and am passionate about offering a supported growing journey. I’m excited to see what we can create together!
