Doug Crouch - Start up development phase & Teacher
Trained as both a Permaculture Designer and Fish and Wildlife Manager, Doug has extensive knowledge surrounding landscape planning and food production systems including aquaculture. This regenerative design and implementation work stems from his passion for water and his innate connection with nature that frames his unique ability to facilitate education programmes in a holistic way. His global workfor the earth and innate connection spans many contexts and climates including tropical agro-forestry, Mediterranean organic gardening, and temperate suburban edible landscaping. To facilitate this work he founded TreeYo Permaculture thus building off his other formal training in small business management. Incorporating this knowledge and experience into sustainability educational programming has now become Doug’s main focus as he continues his ecological design, consultancy and holistic development in various ecosystems. From there he has developed more entrepreneurial opportunities including eco-tourism ventures, integrated project developments and festival initiation and production.
