About Darren Hey

From Western Australia, Darren’s passion has always been regeneration through the understanding of Life principles observed from Nature. Since leaving a degree in Chemical Engineering – Darren turned to training and understanding his body in a career spanning the martial arts, military, personal training and sports massage. Darren turned to the philosophies and practices of Nature Cure, Natural Hygiene and Biogenics after a severe motorcycle accident left him having to learn how to walk again.
While learning and applying these practices for the past 19 years under the mentorship of Dr John Fielder of the Academy of Natural Living, Darren assisted others to do the same. His personal motto became ‘Transformation through Regeneration’ with principles that Darren realised are congruent for both the land and body, and through body, the mind as well. In realising that the highest quality nutrition only comes from well nourished land Darren turned to understanding the design of systems that could achieve a restoration of Nature back to permanent productive abundance with the aesthetic beauty that commercial industrial systems were only destroying.
To this end, Darren completed his Permaculture Design Certificate under Geoff Lawton at Zaytuna Farm in 2016, shortly followed by Earthworks and Water Harvesting training. He was accepted into the Apprenticeship Program directly under Geoff Lawton in 2017, before going on to serve as farm manager at Zaytuna Farm, Permaculture Research Institute in 2018 to January 2022. Darren is a Permaculture Research Institute accredited teacher, and also holds a position within Permaculture Sustainable Consulting Pty Ltd (Geoff Lawton's consulting arm) assisting others to achieve their dream of off grid or sustainable and regenerative living.
Currently living off grid, Darren believes that in order to really change the world and usher in a new paradigm of living on Earth, you actually have to live it yourself. Not only does Darren practice a high-raw to 100% raw plant based diet from food grown off the land, he is also actively involved in his own awareness training through the application of technologies of consciousness. Whether through yoga, meditation, breath-work, bioenergetics practices and others, Darren understands that if you can connect with the intelligent life-force energy within by any means, you will have a tool (and living friend) that will surely advance you not only in wisdom, but in freedom, truth and love.
