“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 is my gardening coach. She has a massive challenge because I have minimal knowledge.
But thanks to Claire I’m enjoying the journey. Learning about moon phases and plant growth;
enriching the soil; as well as a focus on organic principals with no chemicals.

Also my knowledge is growing about the importance of using food waste/bokashi. As well as
using nutrient rich fertilisers. Plus (EM) Effective Microorganisms to enhance the soil ecosystem,
and using natural pest deterrents.

Still heaps to learn and put into practice. It gives me tons of personal satisfaction growing our own food. Thanks Claire hang in there!”

Sir Graham Henry, private client, Waiheke Island

“Thanks again for presenting such a wonderful inspiring workshop. Your experience and passion for better living shines through. I left inspired; collected the fallen grapefruit on my section, found some tiger worms for my new worm bin, and made plans to start a Bokashi.”
