Shannon Paul

As a young adult I loved the mountains, hiking, the fynbos, rocky shore, and the indigenous flora and fauna of South Africa, so it was natural when our children came along that we raised them to be mountains kids and to be passionate about their environment. A choice that influenced both their careers. Having taught English for many years I enjoy reading and writing, and my garden in the country is my passion and our refuge. Here we organically produce our own bottle olives and oils from our olive orchard and grow many of our own vegetables and herbs.
