Robin Clayfield

Wild, abundant, full of wildlife. Some parts neat, lots messy! Always jobs to do – subtropical, so heaps of biomass to turn into compost. Alive. Quiet spots to sit, with garden sculptures and installations. A heaven for people and animals to rest and be in. Paradise.

How do you spend your days?

Every day is different. I don’t lead a routine lifestyle, although I do my best to take a three kilometre walk each morning, and have a healthy green juice to start the day no matter where I am.

How would you describe the work you do?

Diverse, innovative, creative, leading edge. I do lots of different things – training teachers and group leaders, writing books and learning resources, guiding and consulting to community groups, leading tours of Crystal Waters Permaculture Eco-village, and presenting and hosting workshops.
