Ok just as a heads up I'm not interested in debate about men v women, etc. I clicked on the related threads. Don't want to go those places. All I want is some direction so I can see what other women are doing. So name me some permie women please.

In the forum titled 'permaculture artisans' http://www.permies.com/forums/f-151/artisans there are several threads about women teaching and practicing permaculture.

Thanks. I did hear Ruth Stoute mentioned which I loved since I consider myself her reincarnation. Naked, lazy gardening and then wine. Yup, I'm channeling her.

I finally found the thread I was thinking of http://www.permies.com/t/27330/permaculture-design/queens-permaculture
This covers some great ones........not all living though. not all gardening naked either I guess....ruth stout was pretty cool

edit......if you browse the whole thread there are links to threads about several of the women mentioned.

Thanks all! My permie research is usually pretty rambling. Just following one link after another. And I was hoping to direct my rambling a bit toward looking at what women are up to.

Makes sense. Seldom do people want to be alone in life and competence in permaculture is almost always associated with full commitment to the lifestyle. If one is an subject mater expert, I can understand why the other would be as well.
