The Mercy Futures Group invites you to our final session for 2018 in our Responding in Mercy to the Cry of the Earth Program.

For the last twenty years Peter Rutherford has managed the Eco House & Garden Education Centre for the four coastal Councils (Mosman,   Manly, Warringah and Pittwater) at ‘Kimbriki’ landfill site, on the northern beaches of Sydney. An inspired educator, he and his team work together to teach sustainable living skills to thousands of school children and adults every year.

Peter is also the author of numerous articles, publications, books and videos. He has been a guest and/or presenter on ABC Gardening  Australia, videos, talk-backs and both live and pre-recorded interviews.

Peter’s passion for, and knowledge of, sustainable living comes from both hands on experience and academic studies.

 Peter Rutherford’s knowledge of the soil and the magical process of composting, worms and microbes is extensive. With passion and a remarkable depth of understanding, he inspires everyone he connects with to create their own ‘Eco Houses and Gardens.’
