Lily Norman Johnny

Age 15

13-15 year olds

Johnny is a shy, unassuming yet colourful character, well known in our community as a passionate environmentalist and advocate for getting kids into the garden. He is generous with his time, sharing his knowledge on how to live more consciously. He has spent many hours in our garden teaching my sister and me, along with all the neighbourhood kids, about native and edible plants and how to nurture our land.
