MEET Farmher, Sheia:
Born in England, of Turkish Cypriot and Punjabi descent…immigrated to Australia with my family.
I have always loved to grow plants, and had my first garden at a young age, I loved to grow flowers and vegetables – still do Along with my love of gardening, I also have a keen interest in health and healing, I completed a Bachelor of Science with majors in clinical Biochemistry and Microbiology. However, I became disenchanted with the pharmaceutical approach to healing, and began to look for other more holistic systems…leading me to Ayurveda, TCM, Kinesiology, Feng Shui and many other amazing ancient modalities. I have also been involved with Industrial Hemp which was my introduction to commercial growing, and coming to the land where we now farm.
