Patrik owns and operated Ecoasis in Albuquerque, NM. He is a phenomenal grafter, tree expert, builder, and all around great guy. Because Patrik is local, we are able to derive insight and guidance from him on a regular basis.

Brian Fey

Brian is both brilliant and accomplished. He lives just above the village of Erongaaricuaro in the state of Michoacan, Mexico. Brian owns and operates the Bosque Village, a research center and retreat. Brian is completely off the grid. He is conducting very important experiments on plantlife and its ability to survive climate change at his site.

Jenny is a master permaculturist. She has one of the most impressive sites I have seen. Her site is located just above the village of Erongaaricuaro in the state of Michoacan, Mexico. She has been working on her site for over 15 years, and it is quite extraordinary. This site is an excellent example of what is possible when one focuses their time and energy on becoming as eco-friendly as possible.
