ROBINA McCURDY: BACKGROUND
Robina is a New Zealander who also identifies herself as a planetary
citizen. She is co-founder/resident/trustee of Tui Land Trust & Community
and founder/trustee of the Institute for Earthcare Education Aotearoa. She
is a state and Steiner trained primary school teacher, and has a
Permaculture Diploma in Trusteeship, Media and Education, and qualifications
in Seed
Technology. For three decades Robina has been engaged in broadscale
community development, and for the past 18 years in permaculture design and
teaching, organic growing, the development of environmental education
resources and the creation of participatory processes for decision making
and collective action. She has taught and applied these powerful
community-building methods with households, neighbourhoods, schools, farms,
ecovillages and bioregions, in Aotearoa/New Zealand, Australia, South
Africa, Ireland, Brazil and USA.

Robina was the originator/coordinator of Golden Bay's 'PLANET Organic', a
year-long vocational training in community-scale sustainable landuse design,
management & facilitation. Throughout her life, she has worked with minimal
resources to bring about significant changes in the lives of people, their
communities and their environment. Consequently, human capacity building is
one of Robina's special skills - inspiring, guiding and offering specific
tools and techniques for people to access their gifts, develop their
potential, build their resourcefulness, and live their dreams.


INSTITUTE OF EARTHCARE EDUCATION AOTEAROA
Most of Robina's educational programmes are offered under the Institute of
Earthcare Education Aotearoa, a non-profit charitable trust dedicated to the
ethics and principles of sustainability. In its national and international
work, Earthcare commonly builds working partnerships with organisations
which have compatible aims. As a non-profit entity, Earthcare is eligible
to receive tax deductible donations from the USA, through the organisation
United Way. If you are interested to find out more, email Joanna Piekarski,
one of Earthcare¹s trustees: rojoanna at ihug.co.nz

Earthcare's aims:
- to provide and promote education in environmental awareness, sustainable
land use and responsible resource management.
- to promote a wholistic approach to education by teaching the principles
and practices of cooperation, community participation and sustainable
culture.
- to promote, conduct and publish research and educational materials on
sustainable systems.

Some organisations which have partnered or financially supported Earthcare
are: the NZ High Commission, NZ Natural Heritage Foundation, DANIDA
(Denmark), Fundacio Gaia NGO, Rio Grande du Sul and Santa Catarina Education
Departments (Brazil), Global Ecovillage Network (Australia), Village
Development, Novalis Institute and Abalimi Bezekhaya (South Africa), PELUM
(Zimbabwe), Context Institute (USA) and the British High Commission.
