Rosemary became interested in Permaculture in the early 2000s, seeing it as a logical, practical way of natural living. She completed an Introduction to Permaculture course in 2006, and a PDC in 2009.
She is an active member of Permaculture Sydney North, where she was the Ryde/Hunters Hill Local Group Coordinator 2008 - 2010. She now volunteers on the Education Team. Rosemary has a particular interest in community empowerment and change. As Director of The Permaculture Mob she offers practical workshops and courses which provide information and skills for self-reliant living. Participants are empowered to 'give it a go'. The courses are conducted at a 10 hectare property near Mudgee NSW.
In 2010 the NSW Chapter of the Australian Association for Environmental Education awarded Rosemary 'Environmental Educator of the Year' .
