She is lovely! She is great! It won’t take long for her to become a gardening celebrity!

Anyone that met Leonie  Shanahan feels she has a passion for health, especially for children. 11 years ago Leonie decided to change  the eating habits of children with positive actions by setting up Edible School Garden Programs in Schools where children have the hands on experience – learning about all aspects of permaculture and organic gardening.

It all starts in the soil.  Our soils have to be full of minerals and nutrients so that our plants are taking these up and we are eating the healthiest  food  possible. Healthy soils, healthy plants, healthy you.

Leonie has now set up 20 schools, held permakids workshops, spoken at conferences and has taught and changed the eating habits of 1000’s of students, and parents too!!!

In 2010 in response to Leonie experience and realising that so many people had no garden knowledge, Leonie wrote a book that simplifies organic gardening, easy to read and full of photographs to compliment the instructions, Eat Your Garden, organic gardening for home and schools.

In 2010 Eco Films began filming Leonie program which is now available to DVD.

Both her book and DVD are relevant to schools and home gardens.
