2019 Featured Teacher – Zach Loeks

We are thrilled to welcome Zach Loeks as our 2019 featured teacher!  

Zach is an educator, designer and farmer.  He grew up in New Mexico on a Permaculture homestead, worked as a forestry researcher, then moved to Ontario where he started the award-winning farms, Rainbow Heritage Garden and Kula Permaculture Farm.  His book The Permaculture Market Garden is about how to start a small property from scratch to become an efficient and profitable edible ecosystem.  Zach now runs the Link Hands Food Heritage Farm, a diversified living laboratory farm dedicated to conservation and research of perennial food plants.  Zach travels and speaks internationally on topics ranging from root cellaring, organic gardening, food forest design and whole farm management.


Zach will be sharing about his tried and true systems for permaculture farm design (1.5 hour presentation), and also leading workshops on hugelkultur perennial beds (3 hour hands-on) and his permabed market garden system (3 hour hands-on). More details to come soon!
