Vision Statement


I dream of a world where permaculture has a place on the curriculum in every school around the globe!

The core permaculture directive says: “The only ethical decision is to take
responsibility for our own existence & that of our children. Make it now.” – Bill Mollison, Co-founder of the permaculture design practice.

“In a time of ecological unravelling and conflict, spiritual values and practices have the potential to provide the foundation from which to respond, rebuild and reconcile our relationship with the earth, our common home”. – St Ethelburga’s

Permaculture enables a spiritual connection to the land and all living beings, is solution oriented and it inspires us humans to write a more hopeful story for the future.



A little more about me…

I am curious about the natural world, and I use that curiosity to inspire my art, design and teaching. I get excited about plants, fungi and creatures of all kinds and I am on a personal mission to decipher the ways they communicate, co-operate and thrive and to share my findings with you!

I have co-facilitated courses and workshops for business organisations, arts projects and workshops in schools as well as working as a compere within the alternative London cabaret scene.

I help create safe learning environments that allow us to understand nature as our teacher. My earliest experience of teaching Permaculture was being approached by a business group to run a course for an urban, sustainability-oriented community group. It focused on the social aspect of applying the wisdom found in nature to human ecosystems.

I am fascinated by biomimicry and artworks inspired by nature’s sacred design. Natural installations have been an ongoing interest of mine as they inspire an innate fascination with the spectacle of nature.

I embarked on my Permaculture Diploma journey under Looby Macnamara’s mentorship and currently travelling around the word living the dream, facilitating permaculture courses, workshops and learning from the indigenous people I meet on my travels.

In September 2017, I completed teaching my first Yoga and Permaculture PDC (permaculture design certificate and the first of its kind in India) in the Himalayas and I assisted on the social permaculture stream at the  International Permaculture Convergence PDC in Hyderabad, India In November 2017.
