Previous work: I have previously worked in various places and various roles – in Aviation, adventure tourism, office administration, property developments, and studied Horticulture at NMIT.
Favourite plant & edible plant: My favourite plant is the Nikau and my favourite edible plant is the Tomato.
Interests/hobbies: Food, swimming, fishing, biking, hiking and Yoga. I enjoy enhancing and developing our property and organic edible gardens with my family. I particularly enjoy sowing seeds in the greenhouse and watching my five and six-year-old girls eat most of the produce before it gets to the table also growing enough food to share in the community.
Gardening tip: Know your soil type and plant the right plants for your soil. Knowing what you have at your property will help you select the right additives you need to improve your soils existing properties.
