Linda was born in Gippsland, Victoria where her younger years were an immersion in the bush and the family vegetable garden. Linda has always seen herself as a ‘carer’ and teacher, initially pursuing nursing to be a midwife, caring for families and babies then formalising her horticultural knowledge with a Horticultural qualification in order to care for the environment.

Further university studies, research and years of practical experience have seen her specialise in environmental education and sustainability, permaculture and landscape design related to sustainability. She has lectured for a number of years in education, sustainability and the built environment at Griffith University and Queensland University of Technology and TAFE.

Linda has designed landscapes throughout SEQld, often embedded within the principles of permaculture and organics. She writes for a number of publications, but may be read regularly in subTropical Gardening magazine.

Linda is a practiced and entertaining presenter and educator, sharing her knowledge on horticultural and environmental topics. Her favoured topic areas relate to sustainability, ecological footprint and adaptation to climate change and landscape design with the environment as a central premise.

At home Linda is known for her culinary skills, her ability to do multiple things at once and her inability to say no to a good offer if it relates to plants or gardens.

Linda organises the Australian Institute of Horticulture’s Subtropical Gardening Classes held at Roma Street Parkland.
