About the tutor: Linnea Lindstrom is an experienced Permaculture teacher who has specialised in local living economies and complementary currencies. She has a lifelong commitment to the environ- ment, spanning from growing and distributing quality organic food, to direct action for preservation of ecosystems, to setting up community governed currencies that enable we-sufficiency at a local level. Linnea has been practicing in France and is now utilising her experience in Wellington. She is developing a series of urban-focused workshops that bring permaculture design into local households and turn them into an edible oasis.
“Linnea’s workshops combine the science and intuition of gardening, and reignited the green fingered enthusiast in me! The hands on, fun workshops were comprehensive and canvassed concepts in an easy to digest manner as well as providing a deeper understanding for the seasoned gardener. I had fun, learnt a lot, connected with like-minded people, and came away with an action plan, seedlings and a fuelled passion to get my hands into my own plot and let the magic begin!” Fiona 2014
