Allison crouches down to show the benefit of raised garden beds. Shelter while seedlings are small, retention of moisture, ease of care, vigorous growth, very little weeding required. Toby is the tutor for this Level 3 NZCA certificate in organic gardening.
Married to Allison for 45 years, 3 sons, David, Russell and Paul. I have been primary school teaching in New Zealand for 32 years and for the last 11 years have been developing a Book Art Studio, Library, Art Gallery and substantial warehouse of printmaking equipment and materials. We have a Letterpress Printing and Bookbinding Museum that is a working collection. I have invented an A4 relief printing press and an A3 hydraulic printing press that I manufacture and sell throughout New Zealand with sales into 5 countries overseas. Allison and I have written, illustrated, set, printed, bound and published over 100 titles of artist books.
