I have a passion for good food grown and prepared locally and enjoy helping you create your own bountiful garden.

My childhood was spent in a vegetable garden and wandering the bush with my parents, picking wild foods, harvesting honey from dad’s many hives and growing almost all our vegetables and fruit on a ¼ acre block. I even proudly entered my flower or vegetable exhibits in the annual Latrobe Valley Horticultural Shows. This helped to sow the seeds of a love of nature and the potential for productive gardens.

I have been facilitating workshops and professional development courses for over 2 decades. I’m also in demand to present at events like Parks Alive and the Queensland Garden Expo, helping people create sustainable gardens and healthy lives.

I’m ready to help you, through my workshops and garden consultations, to achieve a beautifully flourishing and productive garden.
You’ll find me popping up as the ‘Greenthumb Goddess’ to share good news and growing expertise with you.
