Seeding Abundance

Seeding Abundance was born of a desire to cultivate Radical Hope by empowering people with the skills & knowledge to build resilience & abundance in themselves, their homes and their communities.

about me

Hi, Hello! I'm Tanya; Sustainability Educator, Gardener, Wombler, Resilience Builder, Maker and Doer of Rad Things!

I completed a Permaculture Design Certificate with Milkwood Permaculture in 2018, a Cert III in Horticulture in 2021, a Diploma of Sustainable Living in 2022, and am currently working towards a Bachelor of Science, with a major in Sustainability. I am a qualified teacher, currently offering Introduction to Gardening & Everyday Sustainability courses at Castlemaine Community House.

I have been growing and preserving food, herbs and flowers, and tending chickens in rented gardens for over ten years. I'm currently gardening and stewarding land on Dja Dja Wurrung Country/Central Victoria.

I am passionate about community sufficiency and resilience, food sovereignty and security, and equitable access to knowledge.

I am a cultivator of Radical Hope and a Champion of Joy.
