As a qualified environmental scientist, I am accustomed to using fancy words which are often in latin or whose definitions are as long as a short paragraph!  It’s another language!  Yet, this does not put me off my path as a permaculture educator.  I believe there is GREAT value in bridging the gap between the “layman” & the scientific community.  I also believe that the only true way to meaningful Earth care – is through ecological communal movements (such as what “permaculture” inspires).

My campaign is simple…it is to raise half of the fees needed, just AU$600 - to attend a course, which will provide me the skills I need to become an effective & engaging group facilitator.  The second half is being donated via the Noosa Forest Retreat permaculture community.  I thank them for their continued support & belief in me.

The course is facilitated by Robin Clayfield, who is professional and globally experienced.  Robin is the “go-to” person for people in dire need of assistance such as myself!  My aim with this campaign, is to attend Robin's "Dynamic Groups" course at Crystal Waters (the world's first permaculture community).  I feel extremely fortunate to have this relatively local opportunity as it is not often that Robin is in Australia due to high demand worldwide.

Check it out, here:


Your contribution will enable not just myself, but each and every-one of the students who I teach, to live with true conscious awareness:


Together, let's be a supportive community of Earth stewards - who bring a safe future into the present moment.  Who create a future for humans, on Planet Earth!


And don't forget to come visit someday and check out how far we have progressed with our communal scientific research facility, planned to provide knowledge, skills & resources to the permaculture community.  And know that YOUR CONTRIBUTION MADE THIS POSSIBLE !!!– helped bridge the gap between community & science!  Be an Earth carer too.  Support this campaign!

Don’t forget to share this page with those you feel may be interested or who might simply be curious about what we are doing in our permaculture community gardens.  Sharing the knowledge (and inspiring ideas) is just as important as their successful execution.  It is through new paths that we find the next step.

Thanks for reading & stay inspired!!!
I’m tired of walking, and will rest for a minute and grow some wheels. This is the promise of this tiny ad:
