A sliding-scale fee may be implemented to allow anyone to partake in workshops. When another person's donation payment is generous at the highest level of the sliding scale, it compensates others with limited means. Another option is to trade skills, please email your exchange offer to be considered in lieu of the fees.

Deb uses methods allowing for connectivity to the elements of art and principles of design naturally found in nature.
She specialises in integrating Ecopsychology methods with art expression in Eco-art workshops, within garden designs and environment education. She has created sustainable educational programs and garden designs for schools, children’s centers, community gardens, residential and commercial gardens locally and aboard.
Deb also enjoys painting and her artwork has been exhibited in galleries, homes and commercial spaces in Singapore and Australia. She has facilitated Eco-Art sessions since 2013 and feels strongly that if we experience ourselves as part of Nature, we will work together towards a sustainable, safer and healthy future.
Guided nature walks gently assist with re-connecting with our inner nature and natural environment to provide therapeutic benefits. Deb uses Eco-psychology 'Natural Systems Thinking' model to gently guide individuals to access the natural energy and wisdom offering feelings of relaxation, creativity and inspiration. Individuals and groups of 4 or less will most benefit.
