Permaculture Course Coordinator & Medicinal Herbs
Who am I?
Permaculture, Sustainable Communities
Two farms and training centers with permaculture principles in California
Ray Cole has been involved with organic agriculture, permaculture, and sustainable systems and social Raya Cole - Permaculture Internship Coordinator via @livingecologyjustice since 1996. She developed two of her own farms with permaculture principles in California, and the farms were used as training centers. She has provided permaculture consultancy and implementation on farms in the United States, Costa Rica and India.
She has taught wilderness, primitive and nature awareness skills. She is an herbalist with a medicinal herb product business, Simply Being Botanicals for which she grows and wildcrafts the herbs. In 1995, with the One World Global Education project, Raya had her first involvement in international development. It was a transformative experience to her perspective on the world and social justice. Since then she has focused on living gently on the Earth while giving equal respect to all living beings; human, plants and animals. She contributes her knowledge of permaculture, group and community collaboration skills to the intern program at Living Ecology. Joyed to be working on a project that aids the work of an incredibly effective development organization, she provides advanced mentorship and training to permaculture students.
