Julie-Anna Child ( Jules) your North and Central Auckland tutor lives in Puhoi, she’s a teacher of 28 years experience, an artist, a beekeeper, and a ‘food forester’. She heads “A New Leaf”, a company specialising in biological illustration, and heritage plants and seeds ideal for cropping ecosystems.
Knowledge gained helps us support the health of our gardens, livestock, crops and ourselves from the ground up, naturally. Within the course we look at integrated pest management and how to build living soils, and resilient cropping ecosystems for ourselves, and our plants, insects, birds, animals and domesticated livestock. The course is relevant no matter how big your land is, whether it be a deck, a backyard, a lifestyle block or a large farm.
