About Martin Bélanger

I have been interested in botany and gardening since my early childhood. I started a degree in biology at McGill University in Montreal in 1991, but never finished. I then completed a bachelor degree in arts in 1998 and have since been working as an artist (dancer, choreographer, performing artist, actor, teacher, collaborator).

Since 2005, I have been wanting to steer my life away from the art world and go back to my previous interest. I started studies in horticulture and landscape architecture. A friend introduced me to permaculture around the same time. I read a few books on the subject and then, in 2011, took my PDC in Canada and did an Internship at PRI Australia.

I have designed and implemented a few gardens and did some consultation mainly in urban and suburban situations. Living in the city myself, I am very interested in high density strategies and see much potential in the urban and the suburban. My career as an artist gave me the opportunity to travel in cities across the world and in doing so I witnessed a lot of different ways of organizing space, density and sprawl, dos and don't-dos.

In 2012 I plan to make a definite step into this new career.
