About Charles Otway

I had a permaculture self-sufficient upbringing on a small farm in Pemberton, Western Australia. Not even knowing what permaculture was at the time it all just seemed logical to me. I went on to do chemical engineering. Then when the kids can along I stayed at home and tried to find some like minded people in Perth. Organic gardening wasn't enough and eventually after reading many books I came across the Permaculture Association of WA. Well it was what I was looking for. Lots of energy and intelligent ethical people.

I am now the Treasurer and Memberships co-coordinator at PermacultureWest (Permaculture Association of WA). I am spending way to many hours rebuilding PermacultureWest and looking after my kids to get paid work at the moment.

I completed my PDC with Natasha Levey and Tod Smith (Trained by Ross Mars) and even presented some sessions given a heavy permie background.

Terra Perma Perth, our Education and Consultation business is up an running. The aim is to create one of Perth's first permaculture centric businesses, make ourselves sustainable, bring in national and international presenters. Then concentrate on building WA permie networks by investing the surplus. Key aim, present and show a model of why people should make the change and get into permaculture as a career and business.
