Aaron Bailey joined the Cultivate team on an internship in early 2015 after finding a facilitation course was being offered right where he wasn't looking - in his own community. Aaron has supported many facets of the Cultivate work program over the years and is now foucused on bringing them all together with the community-focused festival 'Elements of Change'. Alongside Philippa, he co-coordinates the Permauculture Design Course, and, loving the social side of Cultivate, often works with Davie designing and facitating regular courses and events.
As one of the few young adults in Cloughjordan Ecovillage he envisions his involvement in Cultivate and Cloughjordan to be effective rural regeneration by supporting all age demographics to appreciate the benefit of community. Living a diverse lifestyle in community, Aaron's other livelihoods include teaching the Youth Mindfulness programme to primary school students and co-coaching the Cloughjordan Li Ching Wu kung fu/kickboxing club.
