Objective

I aim at providing you with the guidance, tools and support you may need to plan and implement your eco-project or eco-business. I welcome all work related to permaculture and sustainability, and can help with veganic permaculture for those who cannot or wish not to keep animals as part of their project.

I particularly enjoy working with individuals, organisations and businesses whose project or work:

  • Reconnects people with their natural environment,
  • Protects natural habitat and biodiversity,
  • Results in ecological improvements,
  • Or simply cares for the Earth, the people and all other species.
