About Christian Shearer

Christian Shearer is the founder and current Managing Director of the Panya Project (www.panyaproject.org), a permaculture, natural building and sustainable living education center in Northern Thailand. He is also lead designer and educator for Terra Genesis International (www.terra-genesis.com), an international Permaculture Consulting Firm. Christian sits on the advisory board for WeForest (www.weforest.org), and is working to help them with their goal to plant 20 million square kilometers of forest.

His most recent endeavour is the launch of the permaculture communities first crowd funding portal WeTheTrees.com. Launched in July of 2012, WeTheTrees provides a unique way for the permaculture community to easily and joyfully fundraise to make their permaculture dreams come true.

Originally from the Pacific Northwest of the United States, Christian spends about half his time in SE Asia and half in the USA. After hosting Geoff Lawton at the Panya Project, and building the Panya Project into a thriving example of Permaculture in Thailand, Christian has begun teaching. He is a natural builder, a food forest enthusiast, a musician, a certified educator and has extensive knowledge of tropical permaculture systems. He has taught permaculture in Thailand, Malaysia, India, Taiwan and the United States.

He also loves a good durian, a hot sweat in the sauna, and the occasional chance to relax in a hammock!
