G'day from Australia!

Hi Everyone! I'm Brittany :)

I'm originally from Boston and lived in London for a long time as an exhibition coordinator.  My background is in art history and I moved to Sydney two years ago to work for a non-profit that organizes large scale outdoor sculpture exhibitions on Australia's most iconic beaches and landscapes. 

I discovered a passion for working outdoors in nature, and became involved with my local community garden. I'm totally in awe of how beautiful and unique the country and its animals are and I want to continue to find more ways to connect with and support these things.  I've also enjoyed the mindfulness that comes from working with the land and there is so much I'm excited to learn.   I'm interested in gardening, cooking and nutrition and I'd like to discover ways to improve the health and sustainability of my environment.  I hope to someday transition my career into the permaculture field and get to work with plants and animals- I'm inspired by all of your stories!
