I understand the needs of gardeners, the trials, the successes, the pleasure of growing fresh food and the deep desire to make a positive impact in our world.

Helping You Grow

If you would like to create new garden areas or upgrade existing spaces, but not sure where to start or what to do, I’m here to help you with a Garden Consultation.

Consultation services are available onsite and online and provide you with personalised recommendations to help grow a healthy garden, with simple methods, to enjoy the experience of gardening and harvesting healthy food.

Onsite Consultations are available to residents of South East Queensland. 

First you’ll complete a questionnaire, so I understand your needs and aims for your garden, and then after spending time in your garden together I’ll create a personalised Action Plan to make it happen!

I’ll share with you my extensive Horticultural, Permaculture and Therapeutic Horticulture knowledge and experience so you receive recommendations on the needs of your garden, help to solve problems and to guide you along the way.  

Planning your meals around the seasons and what you have available will add to your experience of preparing fresh food for yourself and family.

We’ll include garden elements, suitable plants, herbs, a composting system, worm farms or water storage to create simple, yet successful methods for growing.

This is how I’ll help you grow.
