I have attended a number of workshops led by Sally, and have always gained a huge amount from the sessions. Sally is a wonderfully experienced facilitator, and that is always clear from her delivery style and her ability to include everyone in the group whilst ensuring that people are comfortable and relaxed. Sally is a real professional, she allows the group to develop very organically, and before you know it you feel very positively connected with other attendees. Her style is informal but productive, relaxed but energising. I can’t recommend her highly enough for really bringing the very best out of people and creating an atmosphere of learning, growing and connecting.

I don’t have many people in my life who are interested in gardening or able to offer advice, so it’s really nice to come to a session that gives me the chance to talk to people who have a similar view to me and who I can learn from. I really like being able to take ideas from permaculture and apply them in my own space.

It is great to meet other people who are thinking about how to live our lives in a way that is more simple and has less negative impact on the world around us – both people, and nature. I’ve been challenged to think about making some lifestyle changes as well as some ways to garden differently.

Learning about the permaculture principles is helping me branch out my gardening. I can see how it will help me be efficient and waste less time and energy in the garden and elsewhere. It also has been wonderful talking to others about their experiences and gardens. I feel we are all learning together and bringing things to the table.
