Kaya and hello. My name is Daisy Goodwin, I go by she/her pronouns and I live on Whadjuk Noongar Boodja where I am lucky enough to work alongside and learn from Australia’s Traditional Owners. Welcome to my website and blog, a platform I use to share a little about myself, news of any upcoming events and write about all that fuels me. Thanking you for finding your way here!
I am an environmental science major from northern NSW. Upon completing my degree, I took up a job in Western Australia and headed to Yawuru country in the North West. My work centers around Indigenous economic development and supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to achieve their goals. This might include working one on one with groups, advocating for change in policy, or supporting the development of sustainable industries such as carbon farming, bush foods, and regenerative agriculture.
In 2019 I was lucky enough to be awarded the WA Young Achiever Award for Agriculture for my work with Aboriginal producers across the state. I then took some time to travel and complete my yoga teacher training and brush up on my French in Senegal, working with an NGO in communications, health and nutrition.
Throughout all this, writing for my blog has allowed me the space to contribute in my own little way to the ongoing social and environmental issues we face as a collective. There you will find a range of articles on reducing waste, agriculture, general wellness, minimalism, and pretty much anything.
I’m currently back working in Perth on Whadjuk Noongar country working for and learning from, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people whilst completing a Master of Participatory Anthropology and Applied Development. In my free time, you can find me pottering around the house, doing yoga, and writing for my blog.
