I grew up in a small town on the highlands of Ecuador where there is a strong proces of soil erosion due to corn monocroping, when I was a teenager I went to a community in Venezuela´s Gran Sabana where I lived for two years ,is where I became interested in permaculture, there we started a project in agroforestry. When I went back to my hometown I started to become aware of the awfull situation of erosion created by the green revolution, this created a spark for beggining my own regenerative projects and share this new awareness with more people.
I bought a piece of land with native forest and I started to implement permaculture design.
My permaculture formation began with seed savers network of Ecuador (red de guardianes de semillas www,redsemillas.org) I went to their courses and after two years I became a teacher, Then I run the same course for two years and we still run this course ,Ecuador´s most complete course on agroecology and Permaculture (http://ecoversidad.redsemillas.org) Then I went to Aprovecho Educational center in Oregon where I completed a two month PDC.
Now I have my own bussines as a permaculture teacher and consultant , our focus is mainly in Permaculture Design, water design and waste water treatment with constructed wetlands and efficient systems for biomass combustion (rocket systems: stoves, ovens, mass heaters and water heaters).www.yakunina.com
We have a small urban property designed with permaculture, where we also teach workshops,
Our dream with my partner is to buy a bigger land and implement a nice and bountifull farm that can also inspire more people to live in a more regenerative and meaningfull lifestyle..
