About Me


I’m Pippa Buchanan, an Australian permaculturist based in Linz, Austria.  I’m a facilitator and permaculture teacher, researcher, fermenter, improvising vocalist, gardener, cook, sailor, lifelong learner and creator of various things.


I am currently completing my MSc in Sustainability and Adaptation Planning with the Centre for Alternative Technology, Wales. My focus is in discussing, experimenting and developing how communities can develop safe and abundant futures using permaculture thinking, community-driven action and open technologies and processes.

My professional background is in tertiary and informal education, web and games development and educational software. I also write and record my life and ideas at http://makingspecial.org.
