From a young age I loved nature. My parents loved the garden so I was in the dirt playing as a small child. My mum cooked great food with lots of vegetables grown in the garden, take out and junk food was rare.
As a teen I got right into personal development and discovered heaps about myself, others, and the importance of a positive mindset.
Years later when I had children of my own (yes I started Young), one with allergies and eczema, I had to look for alternatives instead of prepacked food and products. I discovered a great deal about additives in food, chemicals in cleaning and skincare products and creating safer products.
As my children grew up and went to school, I completed training in relaxation massage and started a small business from home selling skincare products and relaxation massage. I also worked with my partner Steve in the garden and doing general administration, this all went great until we had to move. We both closed shop and started a new journey.
I later decided to do volunteer work while studying business and got the chance to participate in a Green town program that was co-run with Environment Victoria and learned benefits of living a sustainable life. I became a home and business sustainability assessor under Environment Victoria after the program finished and rekindled my passion for nature.
These days I'm living happy with Steve, my two children, a dog and a lizard sharing all I know about living a sustainable lifestyle so you can live one as well.

Steven’s mission is to teach you how to create an enjoyable and sustainable garden. He combines his knowledge and shares it with you and the world so we can all make good use of our land.
As well as raising two children, Steven has done various studies in business and garden care, and he knows that maintaining a useful garden can be as rewarding for you as it him for him and his family.
I have been pushing a lawn mower since the age of seven. My father was a garden maintenance man by trade since the late 70's.My first job as a teen was with my father’s friend, tree lopping, pruning roses and other various work, it was fun to be outdoors other than the prickles from the roses.
Along the way I picked up a great deal of knowledge about the garden and various handyman jobs around the home. As I grew up and had a family of my own I went through a few jobs to support our way of life. I discovered I was not happy doing most of those jobs and was searching for work I loved. Right at that time my father told me that he wished to retire and he wanted me to take over his business, fantastic timing.
Shannon and myself ran the business successfully for five years then I injured my back that bad that I had to give up my much loved sport basketball and the garden business. We had to move and that was that.
As time heals all wounds I am now able to do light garden maintenance work again and currently work with a great garden care team. Gardening can be very rewarding and I wish to share the rewards with you.
