About Lucie Bardos
My name is Lucie. I live in British Columbia, Canada. Having spent several years trying to reconcile the different parts of myself and focus my energies on a "clear life path", I recently realized that I had been fighting my very nature in this attempt. I have come to know that everything I do in life is somehow an expression of my dialogue with nature. That is my path: I am a "Jane-Of-Many-Trades".
I have been studying permaculture for the past 7 years, both formally and independently. For me, the permaculture approach seems to be the most natural framework through which to see and act in the world. This is why I am so passionate about aligning my life with permaculture ethics and principles in a non dogmatic and critical way.
Beyond gaining my PDC in 2015, I have also participated in many inspiring workshops lead by Delvin Solkinson, Looby Macnamara, Toby Hemenway and others. Previously, I have been lucky enough to participate in community currency initiatives, permaculture start ups, permaculture teachers partnerships, and the European Permaculture Convergence in 2016. I currently steward Permaculture Kelowna in British Columbia; our group hosts workshops and collaborates with local organizations and schools to bring permaculture into the community. I am also honoured to be teaching Economic Systems in the first ever online PDC course run by the Permaculture Women's Guild (http://permaculturewomen.com/).
I come from a background in critical sustainability studies. I am committed to working towards justice through my personal and professional activities, am not afraid to have dialogues about difficult and uncomfortable topics, and I am especially interested in making social movements accessible and relevant to different kinds of folks and exploring feminist perspectives. I love exploring these and other topics on my personal blog and have written about many topics relating to different facets of sustainability for other organizations.
I earn my livelihood by working for a nonprofit that empowers people overcoming mental health struggles and substance abuse by connecting them to the land and to meaningful employment within the local food community. I also teach permaculture and organize permaculture-related activities in the community.
Lastly, I love to create artwork, writing, and poetry and I sell or exchange my work to supplement my income. I've recently finished a poetry anthology that I am looking to publish. I also dabble in YouTube with my series Permaculture Perspectives (http://bit.ly/2GxZrHk).
My partner and I are currently exploring ways that we can live a land-based life while combining this with social projects in our community. If you would like to collaborate, reach out to me!
