Ethnobotanist and Education and Nature Connection Director at Apricot Centre
My journey as a permaculturalist has seen me develop my passions around social and person based permaculture and learning from the land. I work with the permaculture ethics and principles along with traditional ethological knowledge (TEK) and agroecological practices to reconnect people with their cultures, their own TEK and invite the land within.
I have been with the Apricot Centre since 2015 and have codesigned land with a focus on wellbeing and nature connection, as well as developed a fully accredited set of courses focusing on regenerative agriculture. Permaculture ethics and principles are woven through the work that I carry out at the Apricot Centre.
My own permaculture practices focuses on embodied practice, Ethnobotony and nature connection particularly at farm scale.
I have taught the PDC since 2017 and become a Diploma Tutor in 2023. I have specialist knowledge in Ethnobotony, eco therapeutic practice and education.
