I’m an experienced media commentator, writer and speaker on organic gardening, home food production, permaculture and urban agriculture. Previous public appearances have included Sustainable Living Festival, ABC Radio National Big Ideas, RetroSuburbia events, Sustain Australia’s Urban Agriculture Forum and Mission Biosecurity with Costa.

Kat did a brilliant job at giving the staff ideas and inspiration for how they could make their own spaces edible and beautiful. She created a visually engaging presentation and delivered it with warmth, eloquence and humour. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive. I look forward to working with Kat again in future events on urban agriculture and sustainability.

Kat’s hard work, bubbly personality, extensive knowledge and excellent communication skills are truly inspirational and a great choice when looking for a guest speaker. Our members were truly inspired by her presentation and have asked to have her back again.

When deciding on a guest speaker for our AGM, we couldn’t go past Kat. She presented an engaging talk on a topic that could easily have been overwhelming to many people: creating a sustainable garden following permaculture principles. After listening to Kat’s story about her own journey down this path, we now know that with knowledge, planning and not a lot of money, any ordinary suburban back yard can be turned into an edible forest (without looking like a salvage and recycled materials yard). And that’s a sustainable message.
