Ruth Hotson – Integration of New Knowledge

After being told that I didn’t handle stress and that was the cause of my long-term health issues, I have spent over a decade understanding stress and the impacts it has on our bodies and mind. This has led me to studying several different modalities so I could help people manage the daily effects of stress. These include myofascia massage to relieve stress and  tension from the body. 

Kinesiology and EFT to help change our reaction and default response to stress. My aim is to help people find physical and emotional balance so they make the most of life.

Bea Maloney – Creating Food Gardens

Born in Zimbabwe Bea Maloney grew up in a family that always did some kind of farming, mostly maize which is a cash crop. Most families however also have a smaller garden where they grow the everyday greens like kale, silverbeet, tomatoes, pinions and so on. Bea started her food forest as a deep longing for the way of life that she grew up in. As a result of renting she found that starting a garden was unpredictable due to possibly having to move. She however always grew lots of veggies in pots. She has now created her very own food forest at the Changing Habits Farm where it is thriving. Bea also values teaching and showing her children (Simba and Zanzi ) where food comes from. Just like she had witnessed growing up. Bea’s knowledge comes from much of her experience for growing food has come from individuals who have generously shared their knowledge on YouTube as well as other food growers in the community.
