I have lived at Tui Community since the year 2000 Tui community is a well known intentional community in a beautiful rural costal spot in the South Island of NZ. Since completing my PDC with Robyn Clayfield and others in 1999, I have been lucky enough to have worked on a variety of permaculture and community projects in NZ, including waste minimization, worm farming, community gardens and creative education. I have also been highly involved in our main garden at Tui Community.
I am also interested in dance and deep ecology and have trained and worked in Rudolf Steiner Education. I gained my Aotearoa NZ Diploma in Permaculture in 2009.
I have been part of organising a 3 week PDC that Earthcare Education Aotearoa runs at Tui's events and education centre the "Treefield" and have studied Otago Polytechnic's Graduate Diploma in Sustainable Practice and right now I am training to be a primary school teacher.
During 2012 - 2014 I was involved in redesigning and constructing a new main garden for Tui as the original large garden was sadly destroyed in major flooding December 2011.
Its all very exciting and I feel lucky to have worked with so many awesome folk in the permaculture community around Aotearoa NZ.
