Conceived in Pennsylvania, born in California, Delia Carroll is a hardy pioneer species deeply rooted in the humus of Bay Area counterculture. She has a degree in the art of living and diverse skills within the business, artistic and familial realms. She is a devoted plant mistress, a high quality organizer and an agent for regenerative social systems. She aspires to awaken people to their own agency in the creation of a world based on the Permaculture Ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share.
In 2009 she completed her PDC at the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, and the Permaculture Teachers Training at the Esalen Institute. In the intervening years, Delia has continued to hone her teaching skills, acting as Teachers Assistant for well known Permaculture teachers Kat Steele, Benjamin Fahrer and Michael Kramer, as well as teaching Practical Permaculture in Albany CA’s Edible Landscape Project. She is a past producer of the West Coast Women’s Permaculture Gatherings and the Northern California Permaculture Convergences. A current passion is The PlaceMaker’s TeaHouse, which explores placemaking as a form of permaculture activism.
