Episode-1175- Nick Burtner on Permaculture in Action
Summary: TweetNicholas “Nick” Burtner of WorkingWithNature.org Nick Burtner is a permaculture practitioner, advocate, consultant, and teacher. After a greater calling in 2011, permaculture found Nick and infused him with an endless passion that has led him to travel many places learning, spreading, and practicing permaculture and natural living and healing ever since. Nick has attended internships at the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia under the leadership of Geoff and Nadia Lawton. He has also obtained a permaculture design certification from Geoff Lawton and Bill Mollison. And he has attended the Earthship Academy for natural and recycled building techniques in Toas, NM under the guidance of Michael Reynolds. After very worthwhile learning, and on the ground experiences, Nick opened Working With Nature Learning, Research, and Healing Center in late 2012. The center has both an urban and a rural demonstration / educational site which offer hands on experiences as well as class room learning. He teaches classes and speaks about permaculture and sustainable living all over Texas and is open to travel for out of town classes and/or consultancies. You can see Nick’s list of permaculture credentials at the Worldwide Permaculture Network Aside from permaculture, sustainability, and ecology related activity, Nick – a Nidan (2nd degree black belt) – teaches Aikido at the Flowing Circle Aikido Center, which currently is only taking private sessions. He is also a big proponent of internal happiness and believes through the training and application of these disciplines people can find their existence more purposeful and meaningful.
