Silvia is an inspiring and dedicated Permaculture learner-teacher and consultant with years of experience as career and life coach and teacher. Since an early age, community resilience, social justice and nature have been Silvia’s passions. Permaculture came as a natural evolution of her search for the understanding and supporting of natural and human whole systems. Silvia strongly believes that the Permaculture message can be adapted and utilized in urban areas. She is deeply involved in community resilience through various non-profit and grassroots organizations, offering workshops that cover from First Aid and disaster preparedness to organic gardening, food preservation and various Permaculture modules. Finally, Silvia is fascinated by the human regenerative potential of Social Permaculture, Inner Transition and their connections with the philosophy of Engaged Buddhism.
