ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS
Barb Hazenveld studied Horticulture in Canada before moving to Australia where she mentored under Bill Mollison, one of the founding fathers of Permaculture, and lived in an eco-village for nine years. She has practiced and taught Permaculture in Canada, Australia, Palestine, Spain, China, studied Permaculture systems in Nepal, and initiated and organized an "Intentional Communities Conference”. Barb currently lives in Canada with her husband and two children on a one acre property that is a demonstration urban farm of Permaculture in cold climates.
Cindee Karns is one of three permaculture instructors in the state of Alaska, and the only one who has lived/gardened in Alaska’s Interior, Southeast Alaska, and South Central Alaska - all very different biomes. Her goal is to teach others how to adapt and change for a more resilient north, sharing her work through Alaskan Bioshelter and Permaculture Center.
