About the facilitator:
Matt Gravel is a Victoria-based permaculturalist with a passion for sustainable and living systems. After 10 years of property maintenance and conventional landscaping, he became tired of the unsustainable and non-regenerative practices commonly used in urban environments and wanted to find a way to change these urban spaces.
He has been studying permaculture since 2012. He completed his Permaculture Design Certificate through Gaia Craft & Langara College in Vancouver, BC and his Advanced Permaculture Design Certification at the Bullock’s Permaculture Homestead on Orcas Island, WA. Currently, he is working towards a diploma in permaculture education through the Permaculture Institute.
Gravel operates a nursery, design, and education business—Plant Buoy: Life Preservation Plants. He is thrilled to be teaching people about low maintenance, ecological systems that grow nutrient dense food and medicine while regenerating urban landscapes.
