I’m best known for my appearance on 720 ABC Perth talk-back radio each Saturday morning for about four years where my great buddy Sabrina Hahn and I were known as The Soil Sisters and had our audiences (and ourselves) in stitches each Saturday morning while at the same time delivering great practical answers to their gardening questions.
We spent years together public speaking all over WA.
I was the WA Chairman of Australia’s Open Garden Scheme and WA Co-ordinator of AOGS as well.
Sabrina and I also worked together in The Kimberley in the Remote North West of Western Australia with EON Foundation creating edible gardens in remote communities. That was an enormous privilege indeed.
I continue to speak at Perth Flower and Garden Show each year as a member of The Horticulture Media Association.
I judged the Town of Mosman Park garden competition for 5 years.
I’m a member of the Garden Writers Association (USA) and have enjoyed travelling to the USA over the past two years to attend the annual symposiums in Pasadena, California 2015 and Atlanta, Georgia in 2016. I have also checked out the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the New York Botanic Gardens, The Highline and Phoenix Arizona for some studies in dry climate gardening.
