She is also part of the Formidable Vegetable teaching team run in association with Resource Smart Schools Victoria, and regularly collaborates with Milkwood Permaculture and Melliodora Publishing on various projects and publications. brennaquinlan.com
Kirsten Bradley and Nick Ritar
Kirsten and Nick left the city to start a small farm called Milkwood 10 years ago, with a dream of living simply and within their means. Since then, they’ve been growing food, cultivating community and sharing skills for down-to-earth living wherever they’ve lived or travelled.
They are passionate about re-skilling households and communities to create resilient, low-impact and positive futures that are accessible to all. Together, they’ve spent the last decade farming and educating thousands of students in permaculture skills and design. They now live with their son Asher on a small permaculture homestead in Victoria where they grow food, milk goats, keep bees, forage, teach courses and write books. www.Milkwood.net
