– all tremendously inspiring.
Here's a sample from my design portfolio:
Urban Park, and
Community Desert Garden.
My own teaching trajectory includes various courses in teacher training including Suggestopedia, Problem Based Learning, and Teaching in Higher Education, as well as a three year teaching diploma in dance, all of which I have put into practice. I have lead university staff training sessions in curriculum design based on student-oriented learning objectives.
Completing a doctorate in systems science enriched me with over a decade of teaching experience as well as the opportunity to design courses in design, mostly of complex systems. These are transferable design skills. Academic work left me with a scientifically critical approach to knowledge, and study of this field yielded a good understanding of one of Permaculture’s holistic cornerstones – systems theory.
It seems there is a deficit of teachers. I enjoy teaching Permaculture design and am delighted to join other teachers on PDCs in Sweden and abroad.
3-month internship at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
2-month training course in Adult Education from the Royal Institute of Technology
2-weeks training in Problem Based Learning at Linköping University
2 weeks training in Suggestopedia at Centre for Holistic Learning with Anna Cramér
72 hour PDC
... and many shelf-meters of books on design and nature.
I'm computer literate and use Adobe Illustrator as a layered design tool for landscape architecture and garden design. For construction projects I often make 3 dimensional models with SketchUp Make.
My knowledge of plants and horticulture is fairly extensive for cold temperate, temperate, mediterranean, and desert climates.

It troubles me that believers in woo-woo/new-age/spirit-invocating/unfalsifiable pseudo-science have appropriated Permaculture. Such beliefs are both irrelevant and contrary to the ideas and intentions of Permaculture's originators.
Moreover, these additions to Permaculture deeply undermine its credibility in the eyes of those who might otherwise afford it more support and recognition, and who have the means to do so: funding agencies, politicians, and scientists.
I therefore expend considerable effort to design sites in such a way as to camouflage the overwhelming evidence for the super-natural qualities of: tantric swales, crystal-energised gabions, aura-glowing behives, chakrarised hugelkultur, cosmic quantum composting, and transcendental zoning, lest somebody get the wrong idea about what Permaculture is.
I offer specialist work-shops on how to do this. For bookings please visit metafizziksBgone.con
My 456 page portfolio, aligned to Diploma System 5.2 with the Permaculture Association in the UK. There is a video with my Diploma presentation, the portfolio content includes nearly all the designs, as well as critique of the diploma system.
