Kendy Radasky, M.S., NTP is an ecologist, permaculture and biology teacher, and a nutritional therapist. Her early training as an ecologist gave her a clear understanding of the complexity and significance of interrelationship among living systems. As a teacher and therapist, she enjoys helping people build awareness and consciousness – to awaken to themselves and their relationships to their world. As a permaculture designer, she strives for optimum ease, creativity, inclusivity, diversity, and resilience, and enjoys the challenge of ‘turning the problem into the solution’. Kendy invests deeply in her relationships (with people, plants, animals, habitats, communities, and self), acknowledging the value in providing and receiving mutual support with other living systems. Kendy earned her M.S. in Ecology in 1998 at the University of Arizona, and her PDC in 2005 at OAEC in N. California. Her work within the field of permaculture has included designing and teaching a PDC curriculum at Santa Barbara City College, heading the EcoGarden Project with TreeUtah in Salt Lake City, UT, and creating/leading community-based permaculture guilds in Winona, MN and Salem, OR. Kendy recently finished her training as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with NTA and is excited to begin guiding small groups and individual clients toward increased health and vitality through awareness of their relationships with food. Kendy is excited to be collaborating with her husband, Matthew Nelson, on the Embodied Ecology Project.
