Meet Alisa Bryce, SESL’s first Brisbane rep

SESL Australia
The face of a young woman
Alisa Bryce is SESL Australia’s new soil scientist and horticultural scientist in Brisbane.

Alisa Bryce is an environmental and soil scientist with qualifications from the University of Sydney and the University of Cambridge. Alisa now lives in Brisbane and has joined SESL to head up the new SESL Queensland office. Alisa will be undertaking fieldwork, sampling and reporting for all Queensland clients, and has high hopes of undertaking much fieldwork along Queensland’s beautiful coastline. 

Experienced in sports field assessment, land management planning, environmental assessment and monitoring, Alisa has also expanded her skills to include urban landscaping, horticulture, and mine rehabilitation.

With strong interests in food and soil security, Alisa recently completed a master’s degree at Cambridge that focused on commercial urban agriculture – its challenges, benefits and economic viability. She is now comparing this knowledge with urban agriculture examples in Australia, and hopes to drive the integration of more food-growing spaces within the urban environment.  

As an enthusiastic writer and communicator, Alisa has also written soil- and science-related articles for CSIRO, ReNEW Magazine, G-Magazine, GreenWorld Magazine and Australian Science. She is also the author of the Organic Soil Guide, the Lake Macquarie Backyard Habitat Planting Guide (PDF) and a children’s book, Specks the Octopus.
