Lou Bull loves many things but when asked to really sum them up it always comes back to nature, health, connections, and learning.
I am happiest with dirt under my nails, sounds of nature in my ears, a body feeling cared for and sharing this with family and community and learning new things. Lou has worked across many natural resource projects in both the Riverina and Southwest Slopes of NSW.
There has also been time spent teaching at Riverina TAFE - Thurgoona in Conservation Land Management and Permaculture, writing and publishing Aquila Garden Guide and presenting garden talk back on the local ABC radio. In more recent years Lou has qualified as a Yoga teacher and teaches in her local community.
