About Michael Hawthorne

I grew up in rural Australia and then lived in Sydney for many years before relocating to Kenya for work in 2004, where I now work as a Director at 3 different NGOs; Happy Villages, Friends of Rang'I and Strategic Empowerment Program. My formative years on a small hobby farm in NSW and my time in Kenya has lead me to study Permaculture, Community Health, Natural Medicine, Community Development and Business among many others disciplines and during this time I have learned how fragile the world’s ecosystems are. I understand not only the importance of caring for ecosystems but also the imperative for inspiring and engaging others in conservation. With my good friends Reagan Shombe, Jemimah Nyakongo and Clinton Tshombe we founded Evergreen Plains Farm, a family run demonstration permaculture farm which reconnects and re-engages people with the natural world, increasing understanding through sustainable organic farming, restoring eco systems and caring for native Flora and Fauna.
