Peter (Peg) Ryan

Peg has been a vegetarian and surfer since he was 17yrs old. He loves being part of the ocean and often shares the waves with dolphins and whales and other inhabitants. He spent several years in the 1980’s working on campaigns for Animal Liberation. His most memorable time was collecting ducks and swans shot by duck hunters in the campaign that was eventually successful in banning duck hunting in NSW. He runs Valley Organics with his partner Suzi, providing Organic food to the Shoalhaven area. He has spent several years building the family home, reducing the Carbon footprint with passive solar design and the installation of solar hot water and photovoltaic panels that generate most of the electricity for the household. He still surfs in nearby Jervis Bay and plays saxophone and clarinet.
