About Stephan:
Found in our Stanmer Home Farm Orchard (during a pruning course), living in a nook in an apple tree, Stephan had been abandoned by his Pixie parents, and was immediately adopted by Brighton Permaculture Trust. Having been fed for several years on our organic apples, he grew tall enough to attend our Design Course in 2003, and has worked with us ever since. He completed his Permaculture Diploma in 2009 and despite retaining his original elven-like features, he is now a big green giant, which makes him very popular with children in local schools where he runs Eco clubs/projects and implements permaculture design.

Stephan teaches on the following courses:
