About Ian Macaulay

Ian is a visual artist, social entrepreneur, eco-consultant, permaculture designer, off-grid pioneer, organic farmer and gardener.

A native of Ohio, United States, Ian holds a BFA Magna Cum Laude in visual art from Wright State University.

He has experience in geographic information systems (GIS), urban planning, sustainable community design, and natural structures. Growing up, Ian spent the summers visiting Native American archeological sites in the United States, Asia, and Europe.

Ian enjoys exposing students from around the world to Finca Tierra's permaculture design science approach, which integrates biological systems with human structure. He's also a consultant for ecological design, tropical food, organic farms, and home gardens, and is active in the local community promoting practical and sustainable garden design solutions.

As a sustainability specialist, Ian has taught dozens of PDCs and certified hundreds of students from North, Central and South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, and Asia. He received his formal permaculture education from Geoff Lawton of the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia.
