“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 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!”

“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.”
