Burradoo Greenlaw Farm owner and sustainability advocate Kirstine McKay moved to the Highlands with her family in 2012 to have space to "live lightly on the land".
Ms McKay's passion for the environment began at the age of seven where she gathered friends to help her clean a local river.
Her family have also followed suit - they have planted over 100 fruit trees and produce most of their own vegetables.
The sustainability advocate now provides workshops on beekeeping, growing organic vegetables, and how to keep chickens.
She spoke to the CWA's Southern Highlands Evening Branch last week and offered suggestions and insight on adopting sustainable practices.
A release from the branch said they found her talk "inspiring".
The branch was informed on ways to adopt sustainability in everyday life, such as making natural cleaning products for home, purchasing reusable products and having a worm farm.
They learned Ms McKay also bakes her own bread, grows her own produce to produce jams, cordials and relishes, and produces kombucha.
