We hope to see the widespread adoption of ecosystem protection and restoration practices and of regenerative livelihoods across the globe.
We aim to regenerate degraded landscapes and restore ecosystem services for the sustainability of people and all life form, one project at a time.
We work with Nature to design and shape healthy and productive landscapes, and we work with people to inspire and empower them to care for themselves, their land and the other species they share it with.
The values that define the content, products and services of Permaculture Journeys are:
- Ecology – We believe in the inter-connectedness of the biosphere and in the intrinsic value of all species
- Ethics – We are governed by personal and professional ethics that guide our project work and conduct
- Growth – We set out to remain humble and continuously improve our knowlege, skills and qualities
- Openness – We share our ideas and methods and welcome yours

Her background is in pharmaceutical & biological sciences as well as Project Management in corporate environments. As a result, she’s very organised and task-oriented with strong work ethics.
This background and a life-long appreciation for natural ecosystems have given her the drive to use her time and skills in service of our planet and all living things. She also has a keen interest in Nutrition and plant-rich diets to reduce one’s environmental footprint and ensure optimal health.
Melanie likes the outdoors, discovering countries and cultures, and good wine. She also enjoys some quiet time reflecting on experiences or reading a book.
