Her articles, The virtues of Nasturtiums, Preserve surplus harvests using free energy and Make your own apple cider vinegar featured in the Practical Journalist category and were judged by experts in the field.

Julie comments, “I’m passionate about ensuring that I fully utilise all my harvests. There’s little point in growing lots of produce if it is just left to rot on the ground. Through these articles, I’ve tried to demonstrate how easy it is to be resourceful and stretch your harvests that little bit further. I’m gratified that my outlook on life has been recognised at such a high level.”
