Kym has worked for nearly two decades in Public Health, food security and nutrition in Australia, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Pacific. This has included roles with Red Cross, international NGO’s and the United Nations in emergency response, development and conflict settings.  In Tassie she spent some years teaching at UTas, and co-organised the Tassievore Eat Local Challenge & Permblitz Tasmania. She has completed a PDC with Milkwood, and Permaculture Teacher training with Rowe Morrow and is a current Director of the Board of Permaculture Australia and member of the Permafund Committee, providing small grants to permaculture projects in Australia and overseas. 

She’s recently returned from two years living in Kuala Lumpur where she worked on emergency health and nutrition projects across the Asia Pacific region and is loving the cooler weather and seasons of Tassie! You are now likely to find her in the veggie garden, visiting markets, making cheese and ferments, and enjoying a glass of Tassie white with her partner, two dogs and chickens in the West Tamar region. Kym also works part time for Permaculture Australia as the Admin/Membership/Marketing Manager.
