I first came across permaculture back in the late 1980's, being fortunate enough to meet one of the first designers working in this country. I found the subject full of common sense ideas that immediately inspired me to apply the principles in my own life. During the 1990's I regularly lectured & debated on environmental issues in schools & colleges & in the media for a national campaigning group over a period of five years. After completing the Full Design Course, I went on to participate in a week-long Teaching Permaculture Creatively course & to complete Stage One of the C&G Adult Education Teaching Certificate. I have also designed & implemented several major garden projects during the last decade, which formed a major part of my Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design portfolio which I completed in September 2003. Also in 2003 I initiatied the Permaculture Musicians group of which 'Earth Stars' - a benefit CD of songs in aid of permaculture projects was the first fruit.

I served as a trustee of the Permaculture Association for five years (September 2000-5) & am currently involved in Diploma development. I am also the South West Regional Reference person for the Diploma WorkNet & work as a Support Tutor to help students on their own Diploma pathways. I feel that permaculture has a lot of solutions to offer us & enjoy teaching 'something that can really make a difference in all our lives'. HI am currently involved in co-ordinating a number of projects, including developing online learning & filming a new promotional video about permaculture in the UK.
