About the Teacher:
Kay Baxter is a professional seed saver, an educator in the fields of Nutrient Dense Food Production and Regenerative Garden design and Management, and the co-founder and Managing Director of NZ's Koanga Institute. She has authored many books, and continues to be a leading researcher in the field of human health in relation to our environment.
After attending the first Permaculture Course taught in NZ in 1984, Kay has been inspired to work closely with the principles of permaculture in a way that allows NZ home gardeners to work towards self reliance. She has worked as a design consultant, designing permaculture gardens and orchards around NZ, and developed the Koanga Institute to be a globally significant seed saving and educational organisation. In recent years her research has been focused on bringing the techniques of Biological Agriculture to methods suitable for home gardeners, to regenerate soils and produce high quality nutrient dense food. The essential links between environmental health and human health are an integral part of Kay's work and her passion for teaching and sharing her knowledge continues to inform and inspire people to positive action.

Kay is co-founder of the Koanga Institute, a NZ charitable trust. The Koanga Institute holds a globally unique collection of more than 300 heritage fruit trees, 800 heritage seed lines and a large collection of perennial vegetables.
