Grahame’s Bio -In 2007 Grahame moved with his young family back to Northern Victoria where he grew up. Since then he and his wife Lisa have been working to transform a 1.2 hectare property on the edge of their small town. They make their living from this property, Katamatite Garlic, with their small commercial production, and with property tours. Although Grahame has been a student and practitioner of permaculture for many years, and the property is evidence of that, he completed his PDC in 2017 and found it to be a very rewarding and affirming experience. He is a ‘people person’ who loves plants and particularly loves soil. Grahame completed his Bachelor of Science in Horticulture at Melbourne University, Burnley in 1993.
