CAROLINE RILEY – LEAD INSTRUCTOR & CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT

Her Story:

Caroline Riley is a Texas native who grew up in the garden and free ranging on the Texas coast with her family. She discovered permaculture design while living in Colorado in 2004 and soon incorporated the ethics and principles into her Montessori classroom as a foundation to learn from nature with youth.

Caroline has studied permaculture with many great instructors, including Geoff Lawton, Warren Brush, Judd Hobbs, Kirby Fry, Dick Pierce and more. Her goal is to create a unique learning opportunity for her students from her vast experience.

Based on her personal goals, Caroline founded One World Permaculture in 2010. It’s mission is to inspire regenerative community, ecology and economy by connecting and serving people worldwide using the application of permaculture design ethics and principles.

Today she owns the Whole Life Learning Center with her husband which is where she focuses her creative efforts, working to create and maintain a permaculture education center for people of all ages in Austin, Texas.

When not at the learning center Caroline can be found searching out cool waters for swimming and enjoying the retreat of her South Austin home with her family.
