Consultation and Design

For the last 11 years I have been working within, and researching home and commercial organic horticulture. I am passionate about contributing to a regenerative local food system, specifically within the fields of mixed fruit production and no-till market gardening. I am committed to the process of designing and improving growing systems so that they are cost effective, beautiful, scalable, and make the most of our energy and material inputs. Whether you live in the city, suburbia or a farm, I would love to help you make the most of the earth beneath your feet.


These can be tailored to suit your needs. Past workshops have covered topics such as orchard and garden design; fruit tree training, pruning and espalier; no-till home and market gardening; composting; water harvesting; nursery production; pest and disease management; chicken systems and more. I can come to a location that suits you and your friends, or I can host here at George Street Orchard.

Fruit tree pruning and training

Do you have fruit trees and berries that could benefit from some extra care? I can help you keep your plants healthy and highly productive. Invite your friends over and we can make it a learning experience for all!
