About Michael Cooley

Michael obtained his PDC via Geoff Lawton, PRI, in 2013 , and had been a student of Permaculture Design for over 25 years prior to obtaining the PDC.

His interest in Permaculture came through an interest in perennial food production and a desire for nutrient rich foods. He is particularly interested in the value of Agroforestry, food security, and medicinal plants and herbs. Michael is pursuing a Masters in Natural Resources/Agroforestry and has a Graduate Certificate in Agroforestry at the University of Missouri

Michael's prior career experiences as a licensed Financial Advisor and Human Resources Executive, as well as various areas of emergency management have given him unique perspectives on the economics of Permaculture Design and the management of inputs. Michael also has degrees in Political Science and Business Management, giving him important knowledge of policy formation and financial development.

He received a certificate in Permaculture Teacher Training in 2015 at Kinstone Academy of Applied Permaculture. He has taught various workshops and given numerous lectures on Permaculture to a variety of groups. He has also worked with numerous landholders for Permaculture Design Plans.

Michael is presently creating a Permaculture demonstration site on acreage in the northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia (temperate climate).

One of his ultimate goals is to teach the PDC and Agroforestry at the collegiate level and in developing countries where adequate nutrition is not readily available. He is looking to work in Aid work situations worldwide to further his experience in varied climates.

Michael is available as a Permaculture/Agroforestry Design consultant and lecturer.
