I have worked as a trainer for over 10 years. See below for my qualifications. I offer training services to individuals, groups and organisations. Training can be run at your own venue or from venues local to Swansea and Gower. I run practical, interactive and informative training in several related areas:
Forest Garden Introduction
Permaculture Introduction – normally a two day course
Full Permaculture Design course – 72 hours in a two week block or can be run as one weekend per month for 6 months.
Tree Nursery Skills (Horticultural techniques using organic principles)
I have run my own woodland management business for over 10 years and hold the Certificate in Arboriculture. I have undertaken many related short courses and some RHS modules. My work includes coppice management, orchard pruning, sustainable management plans, small tree pruning, tree planting and hedgelaying. I have worked as a trainer for Coeden Fach Community Tree Nursery (Swansea) since 2008.
I hold the Permaculture Diploma (accredited through the Permaculture Association). I am now registered as a Diploma Tutor. I completed a Permaculture Design Certificate Course in 2000 (Green Adventure, London) and I also completed the Earth Activist Training with Starhawk at Ragman’s Lane in 2006.
I have a qualification in training adult learners – PTTLS
