Tom to teach a Permaculture Design Certificate course in Vanuatu!


Zaia grew up in a family of musicians in Holland, and has a background in top sport (snow skiing) and web development and design. She co-founded the PRI Luganville and PRI Sunshine Coast Inc (now PermEco Inc.) with Tom, and runs the “invisible structures”, like finances, business administration, website design and maintenance, writes articles, records and edits videos and also organises the cooking and the kitchen on site. She assists Tom in running the Kendall Permaculture Farm and supervising other volunteers. She also specialises in consulting and advice for smaller scale properties (up to 5 acres). She has researched and studied nutrition and health for 20+ years, has a certificate in Nutrition and continues to study by research, reading and daily observation. She is an active member of several musical projects and bands, involved in community music and runs percussion and marimba workshops, is the percussion leader for the Woodford Folk Festival People’s Orchestra and composes as well as plays music. She is passionate about community music and loves seeing people discover that they can play!

    The course starts on the 28th April, however it is only for ADRA volunteers and employees. Sorry about that! We have another Permaculture Design Certificate course coming up here in Australia on the 23rd of June if you are interested.

    Vanuatu is a great place. Tanna Island is full of wonderful people and is such a special place. Enjoy yourself over there Tom. After seeing Zaytuna yesterday I’m keen to see all the great things you’re doing in Kin kin. ~Rohan
