What our past students say...

Testimonials from Claire's students

Pearls of garden wisdom

by Alice McSherry

“Claire and Grow Inspired is a platform for rich learning, radical connection with our land and activated social change. I recently attended a composting workshop with Claire at the Waiheke Sustainability Centre and walked away a more empowered human, armed with pearls of garden wisdom that are almost inaccessible these days. The workshop allowed me to realise my green thumb potential and network with other like-minded people in our tight-knit community here on the island. In this way, Claire is a woman who embodies her mission: she inspires you to grow food with wholehearted intention and love.”

A great teacher!

by Adam Stevens

"Claire is a great teacher – she puts everything in a clear, easy to understand way and follows it up by getting you to do practical examples. All I can say is WOW – she is amazing, never was there a question in the large class she couldn’t answer and not just from a theoretical point of view. Claire eats, sleeps, drinks and breathes Organic gardening and has tried it all!"

Confidence to try new things

by Tammy

"Since meeting Claire, her passion, wisdom and expertise has not only inspired me in my garden but also given me confidence to try new things, and feel good about the progress I am making. Claire is always there to answer any questions and goes out of her way to help whenever and where ever she can. Her enthusiasm overflows and shows in everything she does."

Her enthusiasm is infectious!

by Suzie

“Before I met Claire I was totally intimidated by my garden. I never knew what to plant or how to take care of it. Claire has given me the confidence to get in there and just do it! She is an amazing gardener and a wonderful teacher. Her patience and generosity seem to know no bounds and her enthusiasm is infectious.”

Totally inspired to get composting & gardening

by Kristin Busher

“Claire’s teaching style and experience is so engaging, whatever level you are at. Everyone goes home beaming with new ideas and totally inspired to get composting and gardening. Claire passion is infectious!”

DON'T PANIC - IT'S ORGANIC!

Dee Shireman

"For an absolute beginner interested in growing veggies and composting, it's important to do it right the first time, and so I attended a “Grow Inspired” course with Claire. Our whole group got totally inspired! Claire introduced us in a fun way to germinating seeds and naturally growing produce, using organic composting and pest control. She is very knowledgeable and helpful, even after our course finished. I started as a total beginner, and within 4 weeks I’ve become a founding member at the Grow Inspired Academy. Three cheers for Claire!"

Gave me such inspiration to grow

Jules Pattison

"From the moment I sat down in the first lesson in Claire Mummery’s GROW YOUR OWN FOOD four week course, it was very obvious to me that Claire was hugely knowledgable about organic gardening. She so generously shared information and gave me such inspiration to grow nutrient-dense vegetables from soil well prepared from natural sources. We went home each week with seeds to plant and little plants to nurture. The lessons were structured but furnished with so many extra tips - all of them profoundly useful. Claire thank you so much for enriching my ability to grow. I learnt so much."

Fun, informative and inspiring!

Sarah Allcock

"Claire’s ‘Grow Your Own Food’ course was fun, informative and inspiring. The depth and detail of Claire’s knowledge is amazing – you can ask her any gardening-related question and she’ll have an answer for you. We learnt all sorts of useful information about growing food, how to deal with pests, how to make your watering go further (very helpful on Waiheke!), companion planting and the difference between the needs of summer and winter plants. Claire is an entertaining teacher, and the progress made by our class over four weeks, both in class and at home in our gardens, was staggering. She’s also infinitely helpful and so willing to share her knowledge. If there was a follow-up course, I’d be joining immediately!"

Passion by the bucketload

Nicola Stunell

"An inspirational teacher has passion by the bucketload, a depth of knowledge at their fingertips, instills that all mistakes are learning, and has the ability to connect authentically with their students... That's Claire! I learnt more about growing food well in the 8 hours I spent with her than in the last 40 odd years of my life. And the information comes tried and tested! I come away feeling that I too can grow good food in a way that is beneficial to my family and, importantly, our world. Thanks Claire, your passion is contagious, I've caught the bug!"
