New Zealander, Robina Mc Curdy, has a diverse and busy background in sustainability.

In 1995, she ran a three day course in working with permaculture in schools, immediately prior to the national Permaculture Convergence in Adelaide.

In building on the earlier work of Carolyn Nuttall (author, 'The Children's Food Forest') and that of Black Forest primary in Adelaide, Robina's workshop launched permaculture into this new area. Later, Robina worked in South Africa, in a rural dryland region and in a squatter settlement in Capetown, again with schools as well as with wider communities.

She has taught permaculture related topics in Brazil and the USA as well as in Australia. The mid-1990s saw her launch a year-long training program in organics and permaculture - Planet Organic - in her homeland, New Zealand. Robina has returned to Tui Community, the intentional community she has long been a member of.
