About Sara Wuerstle

With over a decade of experience working in Permaculture internationally and over 50 designs implemented, I have developed a highly integrated understanding of regenerative land development at any scale. I have worked internationally for the greater part of my career, building and fine-tuning the ability to think, create and act in a truly holistic and innovative manner. As Lead Designer for a California Bay Area based design and installation firm, I was able to not only design but direct implementation to ensure accuracy, monitoring and long-term success. Many of my innovative designs have disproved conventional approaches and act as models for the validity and value of Permaculture.
I am always finding ways to expand my skills and knowledge. For the past several years, I have been collaborating on an extensive Permaculture research project with Euince Neves which investiagtes mature Permaculture sites and unearths what makes them successful. The resulting research materials will help the next generation of Permaculturalist to fast track their actions in the face of climate change. Together, we have create an enterprise called GUILDA Permaculture as a venue for delivery of this research as well as offering Permaculture design, consultancy and education.
To gain this design acuity, I spent many years studying and working internationally with the leading practitioners in the field as well as farmers and growers, while teaching and supporting dozens of PDC courses, workshopes and trainings worldwide. As a consultant and designer, I have collaborated on numerous international development projects in Asia, Europe, Africa, and South America. I have also lived as part of numerous intentional communities and education centers throughout the world. I am most inspired when people savor the nutritious, delicious, and beautiful food that come only from a healthy ecosystem. In all of these endeavors, my unique sense of style and aesthetic as an artist is ever-present.
