Contact - Richard Pedley (M.Sc. ecology)
Richard is the founder of Agrifutures and has a background of 15 years teaching Montessori, science, horticulture, agriculture and biology at schools; as a lecturer in organic farming practices; as a researcher of biological controls of pests on crops, and most recently designing online courses for Massey University.
His passion is to provide engaging online courses that empower people to discover, learn and grow in ways that make them realise their potential.
"Through Agrifutures I aim to offer an education service that guides and supports people in creating small scale and diverse organic farms."
"I see the future of farming as being about creating diverse and inter-connected systems that replicate the function of natural ecosystems."
"These farms should provide a diversity and abundance of healthy food without the negative impact on the environment."
