About Leigh McIvor

After studying for a degree in Environmental Science, I contemplated working in conservation, before discovering Permaculture in South America.

I traveled through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Argentina, working on Permaculture, Organic, Biodynamic, and Transition projects, before returning to the UK and taking the PDC.

Prior to the PDC, I studied Sustainable Land Use, which was a good bridge between my degree and the aspects of ecology discussed in Permaculture design.

I have recently moved to Bristol, which is a hub of Permaculturists, environmentalists, and creative people. I am aiming to get experience in project management, with the view of either getting a payed job in sustainability, or to start my own project.

I am currently sharing a house which may develop into a housing co-op, the idea being to turn the building into an example of urban permaculture, with aspects of renewable energy, food growing, and education. The street I live in is a mix of conventional types, and people who know a little about sustainability, so there is scope here to merge the two and hopefully inspire more people to change their lifestyle.
