An agroecology and permaculture educator. Joanna is the Founder of Agro-Perma-Lab (2019) and co-founder of Nyeleni Polska Food Sovereignty Network (2016) in Poland. With a degree in Social Anthropology (LSE) and specialisation in the areas of learning, enskillment and knowledge transmission across outer and inner ecology, she regularly collaborates with grassroots organisations on social systems design in Poland and internationally.

Joanna gained practical community gardening and permaculture experience at Organiclea in the UK (2011-13); she then completed a 2-year organic farming school in Poland at Ecological Folk Highschool (EUL, 2016-2018), and trained at international agroecology in Italy with Schola Campesina (2016-2018).

She earned confidence as a food-grower by managing a biodiverse market garden and an educational farm – Ekopoletko in close collaboration with traditional peasant farmers in the foothills of Small Beskid, near Krakow, Poland (2015-2018). She spent much of her childhood on a traditional Polish multi-generational 20ha family farm, where the food came from the land and on-farm processing.

For the last 4 years she has been transforming an urban garden into a Food Forest, based on her Permaculture Design Certificate project, and continues upskilling in permaculture design under the mentorship of Tomas Remiarz in the frame of UK Diploma in Applied Permaculture. She completed a Training Permaculture Teachers course with Alfred Decker in 2022.

Joanna has co-authored a range of permaculture workshops that supported farm start-up and community organisations in Poland, and developed extensive teaching curricula (see Lifegiving Garden course, 2022). She has implemented cross-sectoral, intergenerational Agro-Perma-Lab trainings & knowledge exchanges on: Agroecology & Global Governance of Food & Agriculture (LUSH-funded, 2019), Community Seed Homes (2020), Permaculture Education (2021), Agroecology Schools Toolkit (2023).

Joanna applies Integral Theory across a range of creative productions and projects; she makes short films, web-docs, podcasts, visual publications and conducts Action Research. In teaching food growing skills and ecosystem design, she sees the most direct way to recover ecological sensitivity, to foster inner growth of planetary awareness, as well as to support ethical practical participation in eco-social transitions.
