About me

I live in the North of Sweden on a small farm on the outskirts of a small town (Sävar). I run a permaculture garden for self enjoyment/sufficiency. I work in adult voluntary education and I do a lot of voluntary work related to buidling my local community. I am also part of a team of permaculture educators here in the North of Sweden.

Educator experience

The short version

I have both worked in formal education and in the voluntary sector. I have worked in several universities across Sweden and in the UK. I have also worked in schools (the age group 9-16). At an early age I became a scout leader and started organising hikes, camps, training and events. Today I work in adult voluntary education organising courses and events. I also teach permaculture both on my own and as part of a team here in the North of Sweden. The team has run three PDC-courses since 2019 and we do introduction courses, workshops, talks and events both for the general public and for those who gained a PDC through our cources. 

I also use permaculture to plan and organise learning processes at work for different groups.
