Koreen Brennan has been teaching permaculture design in multiple locations in the U.S. and other countries for over a decade. Her areas of expertise and passion are food forestry, small farms and food security, designing for resiliency, community building, and regenerative economics. 

As a designer, her focus is on helping people create abundant edible landscapes, self-sufficient urban or rural homesteads, resilient and high-yield small farms, and successful intentional communities. She deeply appreciates the value of both beauty and utility, and so strives to meld aesthetics and practicality together to create designs that last, that work, that minimize care and expense, that produce abundantly, and are beautiful.
