What is Permaculture ?

Implement, integrate and expand regenerative design solutions as broadly and deeply as possible, so as to create a higher quality of life and abundance for all living things.

Koreen Brennan is an internationally known permaculture designer and educator, focused on creating regenerative designs that address a number of key problems the world is facing today.

She has a wide range of experience, including master planning, growing hundreds of species of edibles in a variety of conditions and climates, running an edible nursery, business incubation and holistic economics, whole systems strategy and design, community development and facilitation, organizing events, and life coaching, so finds herself taking on diverse projects at times.

She organized permaculture style disaster relief for thousands of Haitians living in camps after the earthquake in 2010, has planted thousands of trees in different locations in the US, created dozens of gardens, coordinated the formation of the Sustainable Urban Agriculture Coalition St Petersburg, has organized natural building projects (straw bale, earth berm walipini) at Pine Ridge Lakota reservation and is a founding co-organizer for the North American Permaculture Convergence.

She has advised on public projects at schools, universities and on the Florida House "Green Home" project in Sarasota and is currently working on the strategy project "The Next Big Step" for the upcoming International Permaculture Convergence. 

For larger design projects, she is a partner with Permaculture Design International, a full service design and installation firm.
