Additional Resources On Keyline and Permaculture

The crew here at Pacific Organics has had the great opportunity to get to know and work with Owen Hablutzel, learning Keyline Design and the becoming integrated into the Permaculture Community. He is truly an expert in his field and on the leading lines of forward thinking innovation when it comes to land use and sustainability, being on the rise to becoming the next great leader of our times ranking among names like Joel Salatin, Geoff Lawton and Darren Doherty. We have a copy of his Bio below, as well as a brochure on keyline courses with him including his contact information. 

Owen Hablutzel is an independent consultant, educator, and group-facilitator performing international work with a range of clientele to enact whole-system transformations toward robust land health, social engagement, and economic profitability, through whole ecosystem stewardship.

Living, working and learning across a multiple cultural-ecological contexts (North and southern Africa, Australia, Middle-East, Canada, Mexico and the United States) Owen brings a diverse constellation of experiences and training to his work in broad-acre and regional systems.  This work integrates bio-physical applications (Keyline®, Holistic Management®, and Permaculture) with social technologies (co-creative participatory process facilitation) and with a wider spectrum of practical, flexible, leading-edge solutions (social-ecological systems science) for regenerative sustainability.

Whether with ranches, farms, classrooms, NGOs, non-profits, agencies/ministries or other land managing/policy groups, the core work remains collaborative empowerment with people, organizations, institutions, and communities enacting positive transformations for land and lives.
