Hello! I'm Pam Golden.

Pam’s life has been as adventurous as a book; travelling around the world between working as a community artist in Salford, then teaching in Switzerland, London and the Calder Valley.  Living amongst indigenous people from North and South America, she developed sympathy and understanding for their environmental wisdom. She returned home to train as a permaculture designer, continuing her desire to create a sustainable future for us all. For the last thirty years she has lived in Todmorden, where the beautiful landscape has proved an inspiration for her books.
