I started this all off and have been carrying the banner for permaculture since 1991. I did my PDC in part at Fambidzanai in Harare, Zimbabwe and the Full PDC at CAT, Machynlleth Wales, with Mike Feingold.

I am teacher, lead tutor and director of Sector39, registered 2014 but had been trading under the name since 2005. The name has its origins in-part from 39 London Street, Reading, where I was instrumental in establishing a rooftop forest garden above RISC, which flourishes to this day.
