The idea for a visting pet and plant service came out of pet sitting for friends over many years, something I have invariably enjoyed.
I am the sort of person who can never pass a dog without admiring it. Similarly, neighbourhood cats, come running to greet me and I have been able to pat and pick up cats, that usually run from strangers.
My own managerie includes 5 chickens, guinea pigs, a dog and a 17 year old cat, all who bring me regular joy and amusement!
I am equally into plants, having been given my own little garden patch and a packet of mixed seeds when I was four. Like those seeds, my passion for gardens and plants has continued to grow. In 2012 I completed my Permaculture Design Certificate and loved it so much I am now undertaking Certificate iii. I enjoy growing as much of my own food as I can and my five Wyandotte chickens keep me with regular supply of eggs.
I have also designed and refurbished a number of gardens for family and friends
over the last decade. I am currently establishing a permaculture garden at my
home in Ballarat. You can watch its progress on my blog!
