Meet the Authors

Meet mother/daughter team: Dee and Tamarin Pignéguy

have come together to share their passion for health, nutrition and well being to create educational books, organic gardening courses and holistic healthcare. The drive behind their books "Feed Me Right" and "Grow Me Well" comes from a belief in the importance of education. They believe that providing people with factual information about their amazing bodies and food in a fun and exciting way enables them to make informed and empowering choices.

"Grow Me Well is a great book and teaching resource. Superb!! It's like the whole first year of a nutritional therapy degree simplified for kids. So useful personally- and a great teaching tool too. Thanks so much!"

"Exploring Nature's Pattern Magic is a stunning montage of bright natural colours with photos from tiny swan plant seeds to helix spirals on snails. Nature is brimming with shapes and patterns that all have purpose."

Dee Pignéguy

Dee came to New Zealand from Canada in 1963 and trained as a primary school teacher.  Her interest in nutrition, food and healthy bodies developed as she grew up on a remote coastal property in British Columbia.  Her mother Joan Donley, engaged all her children in their self sufficient lifestyle. This included growing vegetables and fruit, raising pigs, chickens and ducks, and milking goats.  At low tide they gathered clams and oysters and often went fishing.
