Virginia Solomon – Where are the jobs in permaculture

Virginia Solomon – Where are the jobs in permaculture

We have been training people in permaculture through courses (both accredited and non-accredited) for forty years now, ever since Bill Mollison travelled around expounding the idea and inspiring us all to pass it on. So where are the permaculture jobs? Who, if anyone, employs permies and if not, why not? How can we develop careers in permaculture for our students, our children and ourselves? Come along and join the discussion, all views are valid as we explore this important frontier of permaculture progress.

Virginia Solomon has been involved with accredited permaculture training since its inception and now holds a seat on a national committee call the Amenity Horticulture, Landscaping, Conservation and Land Management Industry Reference Committee. Ideas generated at this forum will be fed into the national training forum for the benefit of the permaculture community.
