Education and Facilitation

Dan Harris-Pascal comes from a family of educators and facilitators that work in Adult education in Australia with Migrants, Refugees and Mature Learners.

From this exposure to education and facilitation at a young age Dan has developed a teaching style that is engaging, informative and dynamic. Dan worked as a school aged educator and community facilitator during his time working with the Yarralumla School Garden and was involved with community education and engagement during his time at the National Tropical Botanical Gardens.

After being introduced to Permaculture and Organic Gardening by his neighbours at the age of 12, Dan began teaching Permaculture in 2010 after he returned from Arnhem Land in the North of Australia. During this time he has taught with Milkwood Permaculture, Brogo Permaculture Gardens, The Mulloon Institute, Centro Arca and El Manzano Ecoescuela. Dan completed teacher training with Rosemary Morrow in 2012 and embarked on a teaching tour of Chile with his partner in June of that year. There he taught Permaculture and Forest Gardening courses in Spanish and this experience cemented his abilities to facilitate the learning process.

Dan has experience working with a diversity of learners of many different ages and cultural backgrounds. He has studied Forestry, Ecology, Horticulture and Permaculture and is an effective communicator and Facilitator. Given this track record, he was asked to speak at TEDx Canberra in 2014 on what forest gardens are, how you can start designing one and how they could be integrated into the Urban landscape to provide food for our cities.
