About Me
I'm from a farming background with horticultural training and enjoy all the benefits of growing food. My Horticultural training taught me to drown everything in chemical just in case there may have been a bad bug or fungus lurking around. (Thank the Universe that that mind set is now changing somewhat). I have since done a number of Permaculture Coarses and apply these principles to my growing and life generally.
