Jamie Mulligan Smith
Jamie Mulligan-Smith is a seasoned performance artist (dancer, poet, actress), peace activist, and credentialed elementary school teacher who left her classroom in the public schools of San Francisco in order to more fully synthesize her work with young people and her lifelong dedication to eco-justice. Jamie has worked as an outdoor educator at the farm-based California non-profit, Slide Ranch, and briefly offered her skills as a garden instructor for first graders at the Kona Pacific Waldorf School. She currently stewards a small group of early elementary-aged homeschool students in the San Juan Islands and is the organizational force behind the newly-birthed three-week “Youth Permaculture Camp” on the Bullock Homestead. Jamie has volunteered, studied, and given instruction in permaculture at sites in the Bahamas, Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua, Orcas (Pacific NW), Hawaii, and Nova Scotia. She brings vision, artistry, and a contagious committment to the reclamation of planetary health to her work with children.
