Our team

Guy Redmond is a landscape architect, permaculture designer, arborist and gardener. Since 1990 he has worked with many public and private clients and over 400 schools to create unique, practical outdoor spaces for learning, play, inspiration and ecological and spiritual regeneration. He is an advocate of the right of access to land for everybody; and replacing global trade treaties and corporate monocultures with connected localism and places that value people and ecology.  He has a degree in History of Art and worked with art dealer Peter Nahum in the mid 1980’s, eventually preferring to leave the paintings hanging in the gallery and the art books unopened on the shelf, in favor of the beauty of physical interaction with the natural world.  He was student of the year at horticultural college and studied permaculture under Patrick Whitefield (1996) and Geoff Lawton (2012). Guy’s father Trevor was a well known New Zealand speedway racer (1945-1960) who later guided the kiwi’s to huge success at international competitions.  In 2012 Guy and Alice and their daughter Tallulah decided to relocate their lives and energies to New Zealand Aotearoa, in particular the community of Nelson Tasman region.  Guy is in his second year of learning Te Reo Maori, and also helps Alice with the Boathouse Choir on Monday evenings 7-9 pm.

Alice Robin has been working with Leaves of Green since 2003. She is an experienced group facilitator with skills ranging from furniture design to business management and marketing. A graduate in french at St Andrews University Scotland, she then honed her Arts & Crafts skills at The John Makepeace School in Dorset before working in London for Sir Terence Conran, SCP Ltd and Pentagram Design. After meeting Guy and becoming mother to their daughter Tallulah, Alice reclaimed her love of singing and went on to lead a number of self-sustaining arts related community projects. She is passionate about communities coming together to work with nature for the benefit of all. Discovering Te Ao Maori has given Alice a deep connection to New Zealand, now also in her second year of Te Reo with Te Ataarangi.

Alice brings with her a broad repertoire of uplifting songs from around the world which she and Guy share with the choir on Monday evenings at The Boathouse Nelson – all are welcome!
