In recent years, permaculture and forest garden research and development has become my main interest. I believe that permaculture as applied ecology has enormous potential, and that only by constantly questioning and rigorously testing and validating its assumptions and methodologies in collaborative ways we will be able to unlock this potential.
My professional practice encompasses several strands:
Design, establishment and maintenance of forest gardens and other edible polycultures
Woodland, orchard and tree management
Site designs and Consultancy for private and commercial clients
Participative and collaborative design processes, especially in urban and rural community situations
Training events from one-hour workshops to 2-week courses in permaculture, forest gardening, ecology and plant skills
Facilitation for group processes
