Permaculture for Gringos
February 28, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Dedicating the past 12+ years of my life to personal and planetary wellness has rewarded me with deep insights into the subtle relations between People, Culture, and Nature. Presently, I offer the services of:
- Eco-Holistic Life Design, supporting individuals in creating and enjoying natural, balanced, and fulfilling lifestyles.
- Food-Forest Design and Management, modeling Nature to recreate abundant and resilient ecosystems.
- “NaturaCultura” (Permaculture tailored for Traditional Farming Families) Experiential Learning Activities.
These services integrate my passion and fascination with our relationships between people and plants, especially “wilds/weeds”, hearty perennials, natural medicines, and enhancing the harvest with added energetic and nutritional value (fermenting, sprouting, cooking, etc…). I am very grateful to share knowledge and experience with Indigenous and traditional farming families as we serve in Humanity’s return to an ecologically balanced and deeply fulfilling way of life.
