About Raya Cole

I am the intern and volunteer coordinator of Aranya Agricultural Alternatives, bringing people to India to aid the work of an incredibly effective development organization, while providing advanced mentorship and training to permaculture students. The Living Ecology Internship India is a program that furthers permaculture students experience and education through mentorship with a master elder permaculturist in an aid setting. The goal is to turn interns into confident designers who know how to start an effective aid project anywhere in the world.

I have been involved with organic agriculture, permaculture and sustainable systems since 1996. I completed my Permaculture Design Course in the Earth Activist Training in 2005. I have interned and volunteered at many excellent permaculture sites.

She has an extensive advanced education in permaculture:
10 week internship with Geoff Lawton at the Permaculture Research Institute in Australia which included 1 week courses; Permaculture Earthworks, Urban Permaculture Design, Teaching Permaculture Creatively, Growing Nutrient Dense Foods and Seed Saving, International Aid and Permaculture Project Establishment, and Sustainable Soils Management.
8 months in the Cultural Mentoring Program for Regenerative Design and Nature Awareness at the Regenerative Design Institute with Penny Livingston-Stark and Jon Young.
Aquaponics Design with Max Meyers.
Holistic Management with Kurt Gadzia.
Holistic Orchard Management with Michael Phillips.
Keyline Design and Land Management with Darren Doherty.
Advanced Permaculture Design Consultancy with Robyn Francis.
Soil Food Web with Elaine Ingham.

I was first involved in international development in 1995 with One World Education project. She brings many years of skills working with groups and communites to the intern program, as well as her experience in many different countries.

I am an herbalist with a medicinal herbal product business, Simply Being Botanicals. I have taught wilderness primitive skills and nature awareness. She has developed 2 of her own farms with permaculture principles and done consultancy in USA, Canada, Costa Rica and India
