“As a result of what I do in my coaching workshops and Grow Inspired Academy membership, 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.”

Sustainability is at the very heart of Claire’s approach. As a passionate advocate for organic principles, Grow Inspired and the Grow Inspired Academy get results without chemicals.

Claire uses Effective Microorganisms (EM), Bokashi and natural pest deterrents to create and maintain rich soils with a structure that supports healthy plant growth.

Based on Waiheke Island, Auckland, and available for consultation globally, Grow Inspired offers a varied range of services, from consultations, garden transformations, small and large-scale food production, and food waste processing systems.

Claire has founded the Grow Inspired Academy; her online membership site teaching people around the globe how to successfully grow their own nutrient-rich food at home and how to compost. Members learn at their own pace with access to bundles on all the secrets of organic gardening – from pest and disease management to companion planting.

Claire shares her time between projects for private clients, attending speaking engagements, hosting workshops and distributing an organic range of products that she believes in.

Claire’s ‘Grow Your Own Food’ course was fun, informative and inspiring. The depth and detail of Claire’s knowledge is amazing – you can ask her any gardening-related question and she’ll have an answer for you. We learnt all sorts of useful information about growing food, how to deal with pests, how to make your watering go further (very helpful on Waiheke!), companion planting and the difference between the needs of summer and winter plants.

Claire is an entertaining teacher, and the progress made by our class over four weeks, both in class and at home in our gardens, was staggering. She’s also infinitely helpful and so willing to share her knowledge. If there was a follow-up course, I’d be joining immediately!

“Claire was a fantastic ‘ guru gardener’ for us at a time when we needed guidance and help with tackling our 36 fruit trees. She gave us the confidence to prune our own trees by first explaining the concepts then with great patience allowing us to try ourselves as she watched on . This helped us to come to grips with a job in the garden that we had previously found daunting. She generously passed on a lot of knowledge throughout the day and left us with organic  fertilisers and the promise of an ongoing connection which we will be excited to continue with as the season progresses. Claire’s passion for organic gardening is infectious and her energy is truly admirable . Thanks so much Claire!”
