I was born on the small Island of St.Vincent where I lived until the age of 11. Here I enjoyed the beauty and freedom of wild nature, climbing trees, hiking up mountains and exploring unspoilt beaches. I then moved to West Africa where I began learning, first hand, about food growing, fishing and animal husbandry. Ten years later I moved to the Uinted Kingdom (UK) and began my search for more knowledge and experience in self-sufficient living, and caring for the land. For the next six years I would learn from those involved in and dedicated to the 'eco' movement. In the process I completed a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course and shortly after designed and implemented my very first urban Permaculture garden. Eager to spread the message of treading lightly on the planet, the importance of resourcefulness and the power of community I began offering my knowledge to anyone who would listen. I began sharing my experiences by volunteering at various community projects, and facilitating workshops and short courses. The main message; slow down, observe nature, be nice, take responsibility and waste nothing. In 2013 I successfully completed the Training of Teachers (ToT) certification course lead by some of the UKs' most renowned Permaculture teachers and practitioners. I am now on route to obtaining my Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design.
