Originally from Mexico, having a Degree of Forest engineering from the Faculty of Forest Science – Autonomous University of Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Gerardo started his Permaculture career by attending an Introduction to Permaculture course in Tulum, Quintana Roo. By learning about sustainability, he decided to change his life and stop being a website designer, to completely learn about Permaculture and a more sustainable way of life. In 2009 he attended a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) taught by Bill Mollison and Geoff Lawton in Melbourne, Australia. Nowadays, he started and is in charge of a project called La Loma Permacultura, implementing and developing techniques according to Permaculture principles. Gerardo created the website www.permacultura.mx that was created to organize information about sustainability and to provide education to any person who requires this knowledge, besides being a portal for all people working with sustainability to be in touch and announce their workshops and courses.
