Describe your approach to teaching
I believe in learning by doing.  I like teaching informally with a relaxed and curious approach and teaching in groups where we all learn from one another.

What inspires your work?
I am inspired by the complexity and beauty of natural habitats. I love to teach people about soil and plant health and gardening in harmony with the natural world.
