About Steve Hanson

Steve completed his 72 Hour PDC in Llanfyllyn, Powys, Wales in May 2009 with Steve Jones, Chris Evans, Chris Dixon, Looby McNamara, Amanda Dean, and Hannah Towsey.

Steve’s PDC followed a seven year self study of Permaculture while developing two projects, the first in Wales and the present one in France.

Steve’s career has been a constant learning curve, which seems destined never to end.
Permaculture gives a name to encompass his skill set and gives it a focus. Chef, Soldier, Chef, Painter, Builder, Gardener, Chauffeur, Bodyguard, Social worker, Woodturner, Psychotherapist, Teacher, IT Systems Engineer, Smallholder, Permaculturist.

The list above reads like a rhyme the English learn as children, but it gives Steve grounding and insight in to our complex world. From this grounding Steve have learned how to live simply and to teach others from their own perspective.

Steve & Fiona have been developing a 5 Hectare Permaculture in central France since 2004. The intention has always been to demonstrate and encourage others to live lightly on our planet through example. As omnivores Steve & Fiona are working hard to find solutions to feed ordinary people on a sustainable low energy system, in doing so they seek to avoid alienating the majority of the world’s population from Permaculture.

Steve & Fiona are hoping their professional backgrounds will help others in the developed world see Permaculture is for everyone to use.

Steve & Fiona’s project in France now includes a forest garden, energy forests, Silvo pasture, wetland, willow nursery, dairy cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, rabbits, apiculture, Orchards, and much more with more to come every year.
Steve has taught 17 Permaculture Design Certificate Courses up 2016 and has 1 courses scheduled for 2017.
Steve writes articles for a local news paper on Permaculture and has written for the Permaculture Magazine.
