Kieron worked for over ten years in a propagation nursery and rural industries and has extensive experience water management, drought planning and irrigation systems. Kieron’s interest in low-input food-growing systems has seen him design, develop and install an off-grid aquaponics system that is used for the production of fish, plant propagation and the growing of a range of leafy vegetables and strawberries.
Kieron also has a wide range of extremely useful and practical farm skills gained from working for many years in the construction industry . He uses recycled materials in new and innovative ways to build the structures required to grow food and leads the teaching of these skills to our clients and at our workshops. Along with undercover garden structures, trellises and fences, Kieron has also constructed farm sheds, installed plumbing, irrigation and solar systems, and has built a stunning tea house.
Kieron has an interest in Japanese culture and gardens and over the last 25 years has grown and
trained a considerable collection of stunning bonsai that are on display for visitors to enjoy.
