I have experience designing public open spaces, community gardens and school gardens and am happy to discuss your needs with you. I’m passionate about food forests, Australian bush foods, food growing and teaching gardening skills. Community garden design, whether that community is a school, a community garden group or a community of people that use a space for a number of purposes needs to take in many elements of the site and environmental concerns as well as the needs of the people involved and how to best make the space usable and enriching for everyone.
I love the breadth of the design challenge with community spaces, the opportunities for new growth for both the gardens and the people involved in using the space.
Projects I have worked on include:
West Brunswick Community Garden and Food Forest, Coolaroo PS, Yarralea CC, Seymour P12 College, Rubicon Outdoor Centre, Yea Wetlands Centre, Resurrection PS, William Angliss Institute, Jindivick Community Garden, Yinnar Community Garden, Beechworth Community Garden, as well as public installations for Moomba and The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.
