SARA DENT

My work is diverse. I am currently growing an on-line and off-line network for young ecological farmers called Young Agrarians. I regularly photo-document farmers, ecological farming and permaculture. I nurture social collaboration and community-building through arts-based facilitation practices, and in 2011, I began teaching permaculture.

PHOTOGRAPHY

I have been taking photos for more than half of my life. I use both digital and analogue film. To see more works please visit my collections on FLIKR.

FARMING

I began working on farms in 2006 and in 2008 completed the Linnaea Ecological Garden Programme on Cortes Island. The program teaches a broad spectrum of organic farming methods and permaculture design.

PERMACULTURE

In 2010 I participated in a Permaculture Teacher Training at Seattle Tilth and began teaching in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside in 2011.

FACILITATION

I am a trained arts-based facilitator. I work with collaborative games and creative facilitation to guide large groups in the connecting, visioning and doing process. It is powerful to see how groups having fun together are that much more able to collaborate and create positive change.

    Hi Sara, I am doing a story on wine country cooking and saw a pic of Curtis Stone on your flicker account. May we have permission to use that in the article? How do we credit and what is the fee? Your contact would be Jan Thalheimer, jan@bossanovaonline.ca.
    Can you get back to me as soon as possible?
    Thank you

    Mary
