I became inspired by Permaculture after visiting Australia (the land of my birth) and making friends with Julian from Imago Forest. That was probably around 2007. I was living in Barcelona at the time and started taking up courses there and eventually just wanted to do a proper PDC so went back to Australia again in 2009 and did a PDC with Robyn Francis at Djanbung Gardens. Also did a second time around with Lisa Talbot from New Zealand who'd worked with Geoff Lawton in Vietnam.
I reached a certain point where I just wanted to get land and start doing and practicing (it's the best way I learn) so I received a sign to go to Portugal and that's where I headed, and that's where I've started my project Quinta das Moitas.
I'm now also working on a project that's about reoccupying abandoned land focusing around existing permaculture projects and helping to create regenerative 'earth healing' cells around Portugal. The project is called 'Earth Neighbours'.
