Biography

Came across pc in a phone box in London - met Bryn Thomas who I vaguely knew. Read everything I could find, and then soon after managed to get on a 31/2 month Permaculture and Environmental Design course at Bradford University, with Angus Soutar as lead tutor and a host of others - Andy Langford, Mike Feingold, Bryn Thomas, George Sobol, Patsy Garrard, Jamie Saunders. Worked on projects in Leeds, learning a huge amount from Wolf White and the Human Scale Development PRoject we worked on. Became volunteer for Pc Assoc and organised events, education meetings and the like. In 1996 became a trustee and in 1999 I was asked to take over the office as coordinator (for a year...) well that was nearly 10 years ago.

 

Interests

Organisational design - viable systems model, holisitc management, carver governance

Thinking and learning - Edward De Bono tools, Tony Buzan's Mind Mapping, Accelerated Learning skills

Soil building - currently investigating Yeomans, Holistic Management, Carbon Coalition Farmers of America etc

Network capacity building

Design processes and techniques (there is still so much to do here!)

Teaching, presenting, talking generally!

(I do practical stuff at home (slow eco-retrofit) and in garden / allotment, but have no illusions that I am a farmer)

Developing new mechanisms for information and local knowledge oversight / planning / action, to complement transition town type approaches

Wearing suits if necessary - meeting new people, organisations and disciplines so we can share this fantastic skills and values set we call permaculture

 

Offers and requests

To discuss and investigate any of the above interests, especially if it means that we can develop practical ways of building capacity within permaculture network and find ways to involve new people.
