Apreciaciones y Referencias

 

Stella es mi principal referente en PermaCultura. Con ella descubrí el mundo de las Monedas Complementarias, ámbito que me enganchó desde el principio. En nuestro primer contacto en el curso de certificado (ella de profe, yo de alumno), ya me había sorprendido positivamente su entusiasmo, la ruptura de esquemas mentales que nos provocaba y sus capacidades comunicativas. A medida que nuestra relación se ha ido, al mismo tiempo, ampliando (en ámbitos) y estrechando (en frecuencia y cercanía, o así es como lo siento...), me ha seguido sorprendiendo su gran capacidad de trabajo y cualidades como visionaria, positiva, eficiente... Es todo un lujo y una gran oportunidad poder compartir y aprender con ella sobre proyectos, tareas concretas o cuestiones más personales. [Sergio]

 

Me encanta de Stella su dedicación, su claridad y su apertura, en el tiempo que llevo trabajando con ella (que ya son unos añitos) me he sentido cuidado y apoyado. Cada vez que hablo con ella, a veces desanimado o confuso por la carga de trabajo, me quedo con energía renovadas, con más decisión, más enfocado. Tambien destaco su valentia a la hora de experimentar e innovar tanto dentro de los cursos de Nodo Espiral como dentro de la Permacultura en general. Creo que el trabajo de conexión que esta haciendo con todos estos wikis es muy importante y sólido. Es una persona que se aplica el cuento y hace lo que predica, con mucho coraje, autenticidad y mucha alegria !! Muchas gracias Stella !! (César)

 

Stella es un auténtico tornado energético capaz de transportarte al casi qualquier mundo. Irradia una gran preséncia de sabiduria y seguridad mezclada con humildad, y le encanta lo que hace,  eso resulta para mi una de las mejores virtudes del profe.

Me encanto la sencillez  y claridad con que dice las cosas que quiere, sin tituveos.

Me encanto verla llorar de reir, tiene una risa muy contagiosa.

Siempre ha estado dispuesta a ayudar, y lo demuestra con olgura. (Eric)

 Apreciations

 

by Graham Burnett, UK:

Stella is a princess of permaculture!

One of the most respected members of our community that I can think of, who has a proven and documented track record in instigating community based permaculture projects that have made real differences to people's lives and environments in both London and the Canary Islands, and who has never shirked from asking difficult, challenging or searching questions.

She was my mentor when I did my permaculture diploma, and gave me loads of constructive and sometimes challenging feedback when writing/illistrating my Permaculture beginners Guide book, and most importantly was instrumental in setting up the the truly fantastic and transformational Green Adventure urban permaculture project in South London against all odds, that provided educational projects, employment opportunties, radical 'peoplecare' courses, forest gardens and inner city food growing initiatives.

Stella took on board Bill's message to 'start at the end of your nose' and fuckin' made it happen for real in the most heavy and deprived parts of London... She's an open,accepting and honest woman but has a very good built in bullshit detector.

 

 

by Andy, ex-UK, now in Mexico if not traveling:

I am delighted to think of Stella as a permaculture colleague and a life friend. We go back quite a way, to the early 90's.  I am continually inspired by Stella's smart thinking and willingness to push the edges of permaculture thinking forward especially with regard to organizational and social issues. For example I am really pleased that she is prepared to bring our attention to the possibility that racism might be an issue for permaculture people, especially with IPC9 in Africa due in 2009. I appreciate too her thinking about how to raise the issue of interupting personal attacks in our networks so that, in the future, we may waste less time going down this sort of rabit hole. Stella is an intelligent risk-taker who knows that working on the edge is likely to attract criticism and, when it does, she models elegant recovery and learning and then moves forward with courage. This is great modelling and encouragment for me.

 

Stella's work with these wikis, nurturing the development of international permaculture communities collaborating in order that we can build constructive policy around permaculture organization and learning, is truly visionary. Her collection of stories around permaculture pioneers makes her our senior ethnographer and I love it that she invites us all in to play our part.

 

I'd like her to lead a whole team of on-line community builders in our networks soon - I was talking with George Por the other day, a man with senior interests in the field of community intelligence and digital mediation and he let me know that people with a socially oriented, digital literacy who also know about and practice permaculture are treasured assets in his view. That's Stella, a treasured asset.
