Marie ist studierte Agrarwissenschaftlerin der Uni Hohenheim. Ihre Schwerpunkte liegen besonders auf ökologischer Landwirtschaft und Permakultur. Um den Menschen Wissen über ökologische Zusammenhänge und Alternativen zur bisherigen Landnutzung aufzuzeigen, schreibt sie Artikel für Fryd. Unsere momentanen Wirtschaftssysteme, besonders in der Landwirtschaft, haben zahlreiche negative Auswirkungen auf die Natur und destabilisiert unsere Ökosysteme. Wir brauchen wieder eine große Vielfalt in unseren Gärten und Beeten, um dem Artensterben entgegen zu wirken. Jede:r Gärtner:in kann dazu beitragen, Lebensräume und Nahrung für verschiedenste Lebewesen zu schaffen und erhalten. Mit ihren Artikeln möchte sie ihre Erfahrungswerte im Umgang mit natürlichen Systemen weitergeben und Menschen Möglichkeiten an die Hand geben, für ein stabiles Ökosystem und damit auch der Sicherung unserer Lebensgrundlage beizutragen.
