Julie Moase – Trustee 

I want to be involved in Nurture Through Nature because I believe in the therapeutic value of gardening and want to support a project that brings that benefit to disadvantaged individuals.  I consider it is beneficial for ones self-esteem to grow your own food and to share that produce with others will be very rewarding. I also believe it is hugely important to eat fresh vegetables grown organically and the project provides this to people who would otherwise not afford it.

I have been working as a gardener for 3 years.  I work in private gardens tending ornamental gardens mainly. I have City and Guilds Level 2 in Horticulture and RHS Level 3.  I work alongside a Head Gardener on a private estate so I am continually receiving training.  

My main hobby is my allotment and I seem to be there whenever I am not working.  I am constantly learning how to grow, protect and maintain the vegetables.   My aim is to grow my own food all year round.  I am very interested in self-sufficiency and permaculture.  I have attended an introduction to permaculture course and plan to continue with my learning in this area.
