About Jason Vlasak

Originating from upstate New York, I have been living outside the US since finishing university. I've been teaching English as a foreign language in the school setting since then, for the majority of that time in Korea (seven years and counting).

Continually reading about all things, I first became interested in Permaculture in 2002 while reading about the first "Greening the Desert" project, though as that fell off the radar (could never find updates about it!) I didn't realize it was linked to anything else until just a few years ago, when I started studying permaculture methods by myself.

Foreigners in Korea are fairly limited in the scope of their activities by their visa status, such examples include getting a simple phone contract, or acquiring land. Last year I was offered a chance to use a small piece of land where I'm currently starting up a small scale permaculture homestead in the North Jeolla province. It is this development which has really stepped up the speed and allowed me to prioritize these activities.

My hope is to devote time to permaculture after formal training and much more experience. I feel that the impact of educating others about permaculture is much more significant and important than language training, hopefully with a more captive audience.
