About the facilitators:
Alfred Decker is an award-winning permaculture designer, a certified educator with the Permaculture Association of Britain, and one of Europe's leading permaculture educators. Since his first PDC in 1998 in California, Alfred has been involved with social movements and projects throughout Europe and the Americas. He is the founder of the 12 Principles Permaculture Design consultancy, Permacultura Barcelona and the Forest Gardens project at Can Masdeu; is a co-founder of the Spanish Permaculture Academy (Academia de Permacultura Íbera); and was a member of the European Permaculture Teachers Partnership and the Permaculture Council of Europe. Alfred holds a post graduate diploma in sustainable architecture and renewable energy (Centre for Alternative Technology).
After taking this same TPT course with Rosemary Morrow in 2011, he undertook a two year mentorship and later co-facilitated six courses as her assistant, ultimately earning a Diploma in Permaculture Education & Community Development in 2013 through the Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute (Australia). Committed to furthering the TPT course that Rosemary developed, Alfred facilitated 7 more TPT courses as lead facilitator, co-edited the TPT manual, and organised a successful crowdfunding campaign to develop the platform. Rosemary has asked him to organise the TPT trainings in Europe. Alfred lives at a cooperative project called Vidàlia outside of Barcelona, Catalunya (Spain) where he is developing a permaculture demonstration site.
Cathrine Dolleris is dedicated to regenerating life supporting systems in nature and in society. She is a permaculture diploma mentor, based in Denmark, and currently have diploma apprentices in six different countries. Teaching and mentoring permaculture has become a big part of her livelihood. Recently she has started the Nordic Permaculture Academy as a collaboration with Nordic colleagues.She is active in the Danish Association on the board of trustees and implement a Danish LAND (Learning, Activities, Network, Demonstration) project and help LAND networks start in other countries and do fundraising for permaculture nationally and internationally.
