I am passionate about sharing permaculture and work with both children and adults in a range of settings. One of my specialisations is in permaculture design and education for children, and I spent several years re-wilding school playgrounds across the UK. I am now a trainer with Children in Permaculture, and co-teach on a variety of different courses.
