Dr Charlie Brennan
From the earliest age Charlie has been fascinated with the land. The moors, woods, hedgerows and productive fields of Devon, England became a first place of wandering, wondering and imagining into landscapes, places and the life they contain. This interest grew as he moved from place to place and eventually from the US to Australia.
With 30 years applied experience, Charlie is passionate about ‘bringing the land alive’. From hands-on working, project design & coordination and community education in farming, landscape design and garden making, permaculture/edible streetscapes design, rainforest regeneration, to supporting Aboriginal Cultural Caring for Country, this passion and fascination have deepened. He is a social ecologist, researcher, has lectured in ethics and sense of place and worked as a facilitator for a range of conservation and sustainability alliances. Charlie offers a range of innovative workshops. He is a speaker at events and conferences, bringing together inspiration and experience to create joyful, abundant and practical outcomes.
Charlie facilitates occasional courses and workshops for Brighton Permaculture Trust when visiting from Australia:
