Introduction

I am a passionate artist with a keen interest in gardening. I live on 2 acres of land with my family and have a well established fruit and vegetable organic garden. Although I have no qualifications in horticulture or permaculture, I believe I use those kind of methods establishing my gardens. I am very interested in finding a job that is garden related, either maintenance work ie. lawns, mulching, planting, pruning. I would like to learn more regards to horticulture and permaculture. At the moment I am collaborating with 3 other people putting together a project to make a kitchen garden for the homeless. We are sourcing council land, connections with charitable organisations for materials and support and funding bodies. I believe with your employment, I could be inspired in many ways and be of great help. My resume is very art related because of my artistic abilities but never the less, I love to create in the garden as well.
