“As a result of what I do in my coaching workshops, my students are empowered to grow their own nourishing organic food and drastically reduce their waste.

I am seeking people who are ready to transform their lives by eating fresh, nutrient-rich food picked from their own back garden, the way nature intended.

I want to connect with people and businesses ready to make a difference to the world by eliminating the useless rubbish they send to landfill and instead, putting goodness back into the soil to complete nature’s healthy cycle.

I am passionate about sustainable living, nutrient-rich food production and large-scale organic garden development, with experience spanning over three decades.

My mission is to inspire others to grow their own food.”

“I have known Claire Mummery for a number of years.

I have found her to be a highly skilled gardener, with expert knowledge on the use of Bokashi for food waste composting. Claire has excellent knowledge on different techniques using Bokashi on a small and large scale, including the use of Bokashi juice for improving the health status of food crops.

Claire also has excellent knowledge in the use of EM technology in gardens and vineyards.”

“An inspirational teacher has passion by the bucketload, a depth of knowledge at their fingertips, instills that all mistakes are learning, and has the ability to connect authentically with their students… That’s Claire! I learnt more about growing food well in the 8 hours I spent with her than in the last 40 odd years of my life. And the information comes tried and tested! I come away feeling that I too can grow good food in a way that is beneficial to my family and, importantly, our world. Thanks Claire, your passion is contagious, I’ve caught the bug!”
