Sharon Dismore completed her PDC in Feb 2009 whilst traveling in Ethiopia - since then she has been gardening and growing full time at Permaculture projects in various intentional communities. She feels that Permaculture gives the practical design tools and elements that she wishes to create in her life and that communities give the play ground to launch them from - place to work on the collective imagination, to pool resources and energy where sharing and co-operation can expand the boundaries to give unlimited yield.
Between 2010 and 2011 Sharon completed the Ecovillage Training at Findhorn Community Scotland and Strawbale Building course (Sieben Linden) a Permaculture Educators and Transition Town training. In April 2011 she traveled to Damunhur, Italy where she took a 1 month course in Ecovillage Design through GAIA education. On return from Damunhur Sharon commenced a 6 month volunteer placement at Landmatters Permaculture Cooperative in Devon, working the gardens within the community. This has evolved and she is now a full member of the co-operative. Sharon has supported/taught on Permaculture courses at Steward Community Woodland, High Heathercombe Centre on Dartmoor and at Landmatters Permaculture Co-operative.
