About Mari Korhonen

In 2009 at the final inch of my studies I was fortunate to come across to Geoff and Nadia Lawton and study and train with them at Permaculture Research Institute of Australia as part of the practical training of my university degree, BSc in Environmental Engineering. This combined with experience in farm forestry, tree planting, biological landscape restoration and erosion repair around NSW transformed my world view and offered an entirely new approach to practical sustainability.

Since then I have focused my professional aspirations on learning about permaculture design and regenerative land management strategies by working and wwoofing on farms in both in the cold climate which to me still represents home, as well as in many arid climate areas.

Throughout that time I've been writing a permaculture blog in Finnish to provide reading material to people in my mother tongue and become engaged in some permaculture teaching. Together with a growing network of other permies we're organising events and giving introductory workshops and courses to introduce permaculture in Finland.

I'm particularily interested in cold climate permaculture strategies and biological broad acre landscape restoration while developing practical skills to put them in practice!
