Karryn Olson-RamanujanKarryn Olson-Ramanujan loves exploring the world and its cultures–a passion that has taken her from her home state of South Dakota to live in Germany, Ghana, and India. After completing her Masters in Public Affairs in 1994, she searched for practical ways to integrate sustainability into her life and began studying permaculture in 1997. In 2003, Karryn and her family moved to Ecovillage at Ithaca, where they are learning how to live in community. A co-founder and instructor for the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute, Karryn also teaches sustainability-related courses at Ithaca College (IC) and co-coordinates the Partnerships in Sustainability Education initiative between IC and Ecovillage. Karryn sees her lifework as assisting faith communities to connect their spiritual teachings about the environment and agriculture with with skills such as permaculture to create a regenerative future.
