ADVISOR & INSTRUCTOR
Lindsay Allen is a farmer, Permaculture teacher and designer currently living in Massachusetts. She has spent the past three and a half years living and working at Quail Springs Permaculture as the Farm Manager, Permaculture Program Coordinator and member of the core teaching team. She is the organizer and a lead facilitator for the annual Resiliency Design Course for International Development held at Quail Springs.
Lindsay was introduced to permaculture design while working abroad and links permaculture design and holistic framework thinking into her work both at home and internationally. She has worked as the Permaculture Advisor to the Tanzanian NGO FoodWaterShelter for the past five years and is passionate about the role of Permaculture in international development.
Lindsay strongly believes in the permaculture curriculum as a powerful tool to create desperately needed change in our world, including how we produce food, create shelter and engage with one another and our ecologies.
When Lindsay is not teaching or growing food, she can be found happily experimenting with fermentations, communing with chickens, spending time outdoors, crafting or sharing a good home- cooked meal with family and friends and standing in solidarity with many social justice causes.
