Julia Schindler

Julia Schindler, is French-American, born in LA and graduated with a master’s degree in development and agricultural sciences in France. Since as long as she can remember, she has always wanted to do something for the environment, and found her path when she discovered permaculture! Permaculture is a holistic system’s approach to creating societies by design that work with rather than against nature. Its ethics are rooted in traditional tribal cultures of the world.

Since then she has been deepening her understanding of permaculture by traveling around the world (Australia, France, Germany, USA, Cuba, India…) working on organic farms through wwoofing, landscaping companies, working for non-profits as an activist and training as a teacher with the permaculture pioneers (David Holmgren, Robyn Francis, Rosemary Morrow, Daren Doherty, Starhawk…). She has gained extensive knowledge in subjects as varied as agro-ecological farming, personal development, horizontal  management, alternative economies, democratic systems, folk dancing, natural contraception, women spirituality, yoga… and always eager for more!

Her passion is to make people not only learn but experience permaculture through not only their minds but also their bodies and emotions by playing games, and inspire them to have fun while saving the world! Raised with a multi-cultural background, she loves traveling the world exploring new cultures and sharing knowledge by giving workshops wherever she goes.
