About Roman Shapla

Growing up in the woods and fields of Kentucky instilled in me a deep connection to the natural world. My generation was the first to have wide-spread video games. As a result I was able to witness firsthand how online games, computers, and technology came to be a substitute for outdoor play. My passion now is environmental education in general and permaculture in particular.

I received a B.S. in Anthropology with a focus on child rearing in non-industrial cultures. Shortly afterward my family moved to the Pacific Northwest where I began teaching kids permaculture and nature awareness through games, art, and activities I created.

Since 2005 I have taught at free schools, community centers, public schools, art guilds, homeschool meetings, public libraries, ecovillages, city parks, and various events and gatherings.

Presently I am the Youth & Schools Educator for a children's museum. I am also completing my Master's in Education with an emphasis on creating permaculture-based curriculum for elementary schools.

In addition to classes and enhanced-learning child care throughout the Pacific Northwest, I also offer permaculture-inspired lesson plans, resources, and materials for children and youth.

I am also the founder and editor of Kurent: A Journal of Permaculture for Children, Parents, and Educators. A magazine of kid-friendly articles, essays, games, reviews, and resources.
