"Green livin' is the life for me", and I've spent much of the last three years doing my best to promote the lifestyle, as well as help others in their pursuit of it. As for my personal experience, it was a slow, steady transition that hit hyper-drive on a farm-hopping trip that kicked off in Guatemala and was meant to reach Patagonia some six months later. The idea was to learn a bit about organic gardening. I discovered permaculture, ended up spending the next two-and-a-half years ping-ponging around on farms, some of which my wife Emma and I actually ran ourselves. Then, we settled back in Guatemala in 2016, and I ended up coordinating a farmers' market and volunteer program at Caoba Farms. While working in Panama (2014), I landed a steady writing gig with One Green Planet, a website that concentrates on both a plant-based lifestyle (veganism) and environmentally conscious lifestyle choices. During that time, I also began contributing regularly to Permaculture News, an outlet for the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia. Then, some months later, Green Global Travel were kind enough to give me another place to celebrate the greenery. Now, green is integral to my life, travel, and--amazingly--livelihood. (I owe Emma a huge debt of gratitude and credit for being the sound moral compass and catalyst for positive change for all that is green. She is a true source of inspiration and laughter.)
