Scott Meier born Christchurch, New Zealand 1970. Youth divided between New Zealand, United States, United Kingdom, Switzerland and the bushland of the outer north western suburbs of Sydney. Mandy, my long term partner and I have two daughters.
Currently living in Wootton, lower north coast NSW on 113 acre property, with 110 acres designated conservation forest. Dwellings, office & sheds built from majority reuse materials and largely powered by the sun, with 3 acres of former paddock, now a developing food forest amongst native regeneration, to provide food and materials.
Commenced bush regeneration in 1994, working mostly in the bushland of northern Sydney. Founding member of the Bushland & Rainforest Regeneration Co-op (BARRC) in the year 2000 along with six others including Mandy Martin. BARRC developed into Bushland & Rainforest Restoration & Consulting during 2002 with Scott & Mandy as Proprietors. BARRC currently provides regeneration, reconstruction, consulting & associated supporting services from the Sydney area through to north coast NSW.
AABR member since 2001. AABR committee member since 2012.
My interests remain in practical or hands on restoration ecology with a view towards practice according to established Bush Regeneration principals, development of new techniques and dissemination of information through the restoration site itself.
AABR represents an opportunity for me to contribute to the development of the restoration movement for conservation and maintenance of the natural systems that support the quality of human society and ancient biodiversity.
