consultancy & talks

Consultancy

I offer an advice and design service specialising in smaller gardens (but applicable to any plot) with an emphasis on sustainability and edibles. This is tailor made to suit your individual situation and requirements and you are an integral part of the design process. The first step is a chat/questionnaire followed by approximately 2 – 3 hours of design work which is sometimes enough for you to continue on your own with ongoing support where needed. I also offer further design work and help with implementation.

I draw inspiration from my wide knowledge base acquired since 1992 including gaining a degree in Rural Resources Management, working in conservation and the natural environment, acting as a caretaker on smallholdings, volunteering on organic farms and studying permaculture design.
