About the Authors
Pat Featherstone
was born, raised and educated in Zimbabwe. She is a teacher by profession, director of a non-profit organisation, Soil for Life, a passionate lover of Nature, the proud mother of three beautiful daughters, an about-to-be grandmother, and friend to a host of animals, furred and feathered.

It is her deep concern for the future of the planet that has prompted her to use her teaching skills to help people to help themselves to a better life and, in so-doing, to live in harmony with nature.

Leah Hawker is a freelance photographer, based in Cape Town, focusing on botany, fashion and beauty. Her fine-art body of work deals with gender issues and stereotyping through the photographic process, as well as mixed media.

Total animal and nature lover herself, Leah really enjoyed being part of the process of creating Grow to Live with her mother Pat Featherstone. Lively participation from friends and family (human and animal alike) made for a wholesome, hearty and entertaining experience. Their involvement added ambience to the documentation process.
