Hi I’m Lydia, the Australian! My background is in Horticulture & Landscape Architecture. In “The Alchemist” Paulo Coelho sums up my passion, “If we improve on the present, what comes later will also be better”. I want to help people eat better for themselves and for our environment by linking public spaces with food production for a healthy, conscious, connected food future. I’d love to assist people and organizations to reduce their environmental impact because a healthy environment supports healthy people and visa versa. Rancho Mastatal is the next step in my journey and I can’t wait to learn amongst other passionate individuals. I love the outdoors (especially hiking and the ocean), writing and experimenting in the kitchen. A quirk of mine is waving with the peace sign!
