Övrig information

Born in Perth, Rowe was claimed early by the Earth; plants, animals, stones, weather. Some years in the Kimberleys as a young girl confirmed it. She trained in agriculture science with which she was very disappointed, then moved to France where she lived in the L'Arche community. Later at Jordans Village in England she realised she would become a Quaker.

Back in Australia in the 1980s Rowe's Permaculture Design Course provided the basis for a concern for Earth restoration. She considers permaculture to be 'sacred knowledge' to be carried and shared with others. Since then, when asked, she has travelled to teach the PDC to others who, due to circumstances, could not access it any other way. This took her to immediate post-war Vietnam as well as Cambodia, Uganda, Ethiopia and other countries.

Rowe's present concern is to make teaching sustainable and encourage others to succeed her as teachers.
