Stefan believes that we now have the answers to all the global environmental problems in the world and have done for some time, and that it’s the communities and people that now need to catch up. He sees Permaculture as the thread that connects all the issues, can empower each of us find our own personal solutions and together build a creative sustainable future.
Stefan has been practising Permaculture for over 15 years now, starting with woodland management and bee-keeping - and now focuses more on Community, Urban and Organisational uses of Permaculture design. He completed his design certificate with David Holmgren and George Sobol, and completed the Teacher Training with Designed Visions, and has taught mainly in London and the South-East.
He is a trained Naturopath & Bodyworker who runs his family’s B&B in central London www.stathanshotel.com, where he also makes mosaics and stained glass windows.
He is currently Chair of the Permaculture Association UK and co-founder of the London Permaculture Network that organises the annual summer London Permaculture Festival.
