Dr Wendy Seabrook is the founder and director of Learning from Nature, author of the Eco-logical Farming Handbook and Eco-logical Gardening Handbook, and manager of Hill Top Farm, the demonstration site and education centre for Learning from Nature.
Wendy has spent the last twenty years applying her skills as an ecologist, digging into the science underpinning successful regenerative practices. She combines this research with practical experiences on her farm and a broad range of commercial and home production systems around the world.
Wendy believes: “It’s crazy to ignore the intelligence embedded in natural ecosystems, especially since Nature has undertaken the research and development in every growing condition on the planet – including our own!”
Best known for her Eco-logical Farming Handbook and Gardening Handbooks, in all her publications and multimedia resources, Wendy translates the science into easily digestible formats. Her presentations and articles have featured on many platforms, including ABC ‘Country Hour’ and Radio National ‘Nights’ in New Zealand.
Wendy’s farm is outside Cooktown, in a remote part of northern Australia. When not busy in the office, moving cattle, or growing things, she disappears into the surrounding wild landscapes.
