“After hearing Anne talk at the Nambour Garden Expo this year I put my name down for a Garden Consultation and I’m so glad I did. I knew I had the basics for a productive garden but just kept feeling overwhelmed and distracted by all the jobs I had to do. But then along came Anne…. with cuttings from her garden, sample pkts, various seeds and a whole lot of GOOD ADVICE. Anne gave me very clear and simple ideas about how to achieve a productive garden, keep up a regular supply of fresh greens and protein for my beautiful girls (chickens) along with sound gardening principles to increase yields. As we rambled through the garden Anne referred to plants as “babies” “teenagers” and “mothers” and then the penny dropped and it just made a whole lot of sense. Thanks to Anne, that “overwhelming feeling” has disappeared and all I want to do now is begin the journey and watch my garden grow more beautiful as it grows older.” – Andrea Hudson
“I, too, heard Anne talk at the Nambour Garden Expo and quickly realised that she is a very knowledgeable gardener who could translate her experience into a very practical and workable partnership with ‘me and my vegies’. Furthermore, she is a delightful person whose enthusiasm for gardening can only encourage you … greatly! I am so pleased I had Anne visit my garden and I certainly learnt a lot from her. What I learnt was specific to my situation and my vegie garden and what was especially helpful was the detailed, written report I received after her visit. There is so much to take in when you are talking with Anne so having the report has really helped me focus in on what I needed to do … and I have done most of it! I feel that my gardening journey/outcome has taken a ‘quantum leap’ because of Anne’s input and I can only highly recommend any opportunity to interact with, and learn from, her.” – Annette Millar
“The consultation was very helpful. So many ideas and suggestions! Anne could ‘see’ the gardens and potential to grow food all over our place. So wonderful to receive a bounty of flowers, herbs and vegies – inspiring to know what we can produce. And a great reminder to stay motivated for several days after the visit. Really appreciate the follow up notes – allows us to create a timeline and realistic goals. Sarah is super excited. This one hour has empowered her to take this knowledge and experience where ever she may live in her life.” – Jenny Sargent
“Thanks again for your terrific help. I just can’t wait to be eating as lovely vegies/plants as you brought me. I’ve had two meals of the parsley. I’ve never, ever seen parsley as big leafed and as strong stems as what you brought and I had the kale steamed last night for tea. It was delish! You will be really pleased with me. I’ve just spent the last 2 hours planting the seedlings you gave me into hopefully a nutrient-rich mix. Thank you for your notes on the on-site consult.” – Lyn Geisel
“I had moved from a cold growing area to subtropical growing area a couple of years ago. Obviously found growing fruit and veges quite different with some success in some areas but not others. I needed help but couldn’t find anyone that was able to. Then along came Anne. Anne was wonderful, she spent a considerable amount of time with me advising what I could do where on my 5 acres. My main priority being to provide enough fruit and vege for ourselves throughout the year. Anne gave me a lot of valuable information on the day and in a written report. Anne not only answered questions, gave advice and ongoing tasks but also where I could source local products etc I definitely recommend Anne and will be having ongoing consultations with her.” – Karen Henderson
“Thank you very much for such a wonderful report. We are still trying to digest it, plenty of other things happening in our life too. The aspects we found most beneficial were your advice, personal attention, report and action plan, pre-visit questionnaire, planting pack gift and inspiration/ideas/solutions. Very likely to book another consultation, and recommend to others. We think you provide a wonderful service.” – Lois & Daryl Wilton
“Thanks Anne so much – you really are inspiring. I loved the day and got a lot out of it. I will send you a picture of the next bit when I am done. I had the best time and I am really looking forward to your report. I have already grouped a few plants differently and created a big mess!” – Elizabeth Woods
“Love the company and knowledge Anne has.” – Lesley Armstrong
