Our 2016 keynote speaker:

Karryn Olson-Ramanujan began studying permaculture in 1997 and is a lead permaculture teacher and founding board member for the Finger Lakes (NY) Permaculture Institute. She also teaches sustainability-related courses at Ithaca College.

Karryn lived and worked in Europe, Africa and India before settling with her multi-cultural family in an ecovillage in New York state. As a result, she is dedicated to supporting women and other historically marginalized populations in their vital roles as leaders. Her keynote presentation is titled: Co-Creating our Regenerative Future: Why Permaculture? Why Women? Why Now?

Karryn has published A Pattern Language for Supporting Women in Permaculture, is curating Best Practices to Support Women’s Leadership in Permaculture, has co-organized regional and national conversations on these topics, and highlights understanding intersectionality as a key for effective women’s organizations.

Karryn also teaches women how to find their right livelihoods and design “abundance models” as “regenepreneurs”; she believes that together, we can co-create a regenerative future based on the ethics of Earth Care, People Care, and Fair Share/Surplus Share.
