Andrew Faust is one of the premier permaculture teachers and designers in North America with nearly two decades of experience in the field. His passionate and visionary presentation and curriculum has been inspiring and motivating students since his days as an alternative school teacher at Upattinas in Glenmoore, PA. Andrew lived off the grid for eight years in West Virginia, where he designed and built a permaculture-inspired homestead including a 1,600-square-foot strawbale house. He moved to Brooklyn in 2007 and has been applying his knowledge to the urban landscape culminating in a Permaculture Design Certification course many consider life changing. He is developing The Center for Bioregional Living in Ellenville, NY, with his partner Adriana Magana, as a pilot campus for his students, clients and baby daughter Juniper.
