What is your venture?
DRYWELL is a sustainable, home-based small business supporting the environment and the surrounding community. I combine my love of art, organic gardening and nature craft to create Drywell’s range of handmade succulent bowls, organic produce and rustic art using materials found on Drywell. I grow majority of the plants used to create the Drywell collection and where needed, source from local growers and suppliers.
What inspired your work?
A love of nature, my property, gardening and being a stay at home mum to my beautiful son. Having purchased a run down property just over 11 years ago, we decided to build our own home. We designed it to be solar passive and work with the natural elements. The result is an energy efficient home that has been built using recycled materials. The three and a half acres surrounding the house is a work in progress which includes free range chooks and ducks, and extensive fruit, vegetable and native gardens. Creating a home based, sustainable business was the next step to creating a more sustainable Drywell. The income earned with a minimal footprint goes back into the property.
What’s your focus for the next 3 months?
To focus on networking and working more with kids and the community.
How can people connect or contribute to your venture’s success?
By purchasing Drywell products, as well as sharing and promoting Drywell as a quality product. Please give me feedback on ways I can improve Drywell as a business.
