I'm a self-taught permaculture student (haven't attended any PDCs yet, due to lack of $$) but have educated myself with books, videos and hands-on experience.
I dream of becoming a permaculture and sustainability educator, but I don't really know how to get started (I hold a Bachelor's in filmmaking... yeah, not related.) In my dream scenario I would own and operate an educational permaculture site where I would host/teach PDCs, and would also travel around the world to teach farmers in other countries how to adapt permaculture to their individual scenarios.
Anyone working in this field that can provide some advice? Is it possible to make a liveable income (enough to support a family, buy a house etc.?) Or do you have to rely on multiple income streams (i.e. a typical 9-5 job in addition to your teaching work?) How did you get started? What would you have done differently?
Thanks in advance for any/all suggestions.
