I live in Melbourne (West Footscray), work for money as little as necessary (swim teaching), and spend as much time as I can developing my garden and community, and riding my bike. I have done aquaponics with limited success, now have a lot of worms, primed to expand garden when some other issues are sorted.
I have done two PDCs and have worked in revegetation when redeployed in lockdown. I am across lots of the discussion on healthy soil/plants/people, but lack practical knowledge.
I grew up in country Victoria and picked a lot of fruit in my youth, so I do know farm life and work. Work life was in NFPs, at the end in tech support. Haven’t looked back since getting out of that. The experience in NFPs has only increased my passion for regenerative solutions – particularly to our food industry.
