About Reed Burnam

I hail from Austin, Texas, though I've also called Los Angeles and Jaipur, India home for a while. I've always been into backpacking, reading, gardening, and being in wild places. I've taken courses on and been generally interested in primitive skills, urban sustainability, community organization, and food security issues, as well as a number of permaculture courses. In 2012, I finally completed my on-the-ground PDC at Quail Springs Permaculture with Warren Brush. I also spent a couple of months on-site in the backwoods of Central Texas learning how to construct earthships. In 2014 I had the opportunity to teach a short Pc course alongside Starhawk at the Unifier Festival in Lebanon, Connecticut.

I currently manage maintenance gardens with the Austin regenerative landscaping outfit Fertile Ground Organic Gardens. I occasionally teach permaculture courses and host film screenings, work with local initiatives and permablitzes, and am currently managing the maintenance end of a number of permaculture installations in Austin. I am also beginning to implement my own permaculture designs for clients in the Central Texas area.

I'm very much interested in the possibility of future international aid work in addition to my work here at home. I have experience living in and working in India, and can speak a fair amount of Hindi/Urdu. Given my prior connections, I am quite interested in arranging to be part of larger permaculture projects or classes in South Asia.
