“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.”

“Claire and Grow Inspired is a platform for rich learning, radical connection with our land and activated social change. I recently attended a composting workshop with Claire at the Waiheke Sustainability Centre and walked away a more empowered human, armed with pearls of garden wisdom that are almost inaccessible these days.

The workshop allowed me to realise my green thumb potential and network with other like-minded people in our tight-knit community here on the island.

In this way, Claire is a woman who embodies her mission: she inspires you to grow food with wholehearted intention and love. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and experience with us – I am preaching the word of effective microorganisms almost every day! Ha! Kia ora & nga mihi, Claire.”

“Claire and her team transformed my garden from a bit of a neglected overgrown and under-planted mess, to a tidy, productive and visually attractive garden.  The fruit trees are thriving, the winter garden is giving and every time I go outside I get such pleasure out of the flowers that have been pruned and/or planted.  I had let my garden get to the overwhelming point, but now I am able to potter to my heart’s content and largely keep on top of it.  And if and when I can’t, I’ll be calling them in again.”
