Ann will combine her nutritional knowledge and permaculture experience to talk to us about some versatile and easy-to-grow vegetables, like yacon and styrian pumpkins, that have great health benefits.
Ann has lived and worked in South Africa, England and Australia. In her earlier professional life, she worked as a chemical engineer in the metallurgical, synthetic fuels and waste management industries, and as a process engineer, consultant, educator, researcher and technical writer.
While in South Africa, Ann ran a small wholefood distribution business, Sunnyside Herbs and Wholefoods, and established a herb display garden. As a volunteer, Ann helped to establish the environmental consultancy The Natural Step in South Africa, and the local & ecological food delivery company Food Connect Sydney. She has also managed a community-based buying group for farm fresh chemical free produce and pantry wholefoods.
Ann has been a member of Permaculture Sydney North for about 10 years. She has done courses in organic farming, learned about medicinal herbs with Michele Slabbert, a second generation herbalist in South Africa, and did her Permaculture Design Certificate at Milkwood with Nick Ritar.
Please join PSN for a lively and informative evening on Monday 19th October 2015 at 7pm (supper at 8:30pm) at the Lindfield Community Centre, 259 Pacific Highway, Lindfield.
