Monique was a great facilitator of our course. Very friendly, personable, knowledgeable. Her handout/booklet is full of great info and I continue to refer to it, and using these skills several times per week as I keep tending to my Kombucha and pickling foods.
I continue to use what I learnt daily as I produce kombucha weekly and regularly pickling. I can start to feel some benefits from continued focus on improving my gut health.

Monique is a generalist. She divides her time between bush land management, teaching edible weed & fermentation workshops and teaching on the CERES Permaculture Design Course. With a background in everything from philosophy to English teaching to working with the homeless, Monique brings her irreverent and humourous style of facilitation to her workshops.

She has been teaching fermentation for more than four years, teaching from Confest to Bairnsdale. Since starting her fermenting journey by making sauerkraut, Monique has fallen in love with fermenting and culturing foods. Infamous for being hopeless at following precise recipes, she enjoys the limitless experimentation of vegetable and fruit ferments. Monique regularly invents fermented products from fermented pesto, mustard, chilli sauce, chutney and herb-flavoured effervescent drinks. Monique is interested in many other “heritage, permaculture and survival skills” which she sees as important for a low-carbon future, personal wellbeing and reconnection with self and the earth.
