There is nothing quite like getting your hands in the earth…

My name is Lucie. I live in British Columbia Canada and am a permaculture enthusiast and teacher. I am also an artist, poet and lover of travel and exploration.

Having spent several years trying to reconcile the different parts of myself and focus my energies on a "clear life path", I recently realized that I had been fighting my very nature in this attempt. I have come to know that everything I do in life is an expression of my dialogue with nature. That is my path: I am a "Jane-Of-Many-Trades".

I have been studying permaculture for the past 7 years, both formally and independently. For me, the permaculture approach seems  to be the most natural framework through which to see and act in the world. This is why I am so passionate about aligning my life with permaculture ethics and principles.

I also come from a background in critical sustainability studies. I am committed to working towards justice through my personal and professional activities, and am not afraid to have dialogues about difficult and uncomfortable topics. I am especially interested in making social movements accessible and relevant to different folks and exploring feminist perspectives.

Currently I live and work in Kelowna, British Columbia. I earn my livelihood through working for a local non-profit that empowers people facing barriers to employment. I also teach permaculture and organize permaculture-related activities in the community. Lastly, I create artwork, writing, and poetry and sell or exchange my work to supplement my income. I also dabble in YouTube with my series Permaculture Perspectives.
