About Jesse Lemieux

Jesse Lemieux is permaculture educator, design consultant and father. He spent the impressionable years of his life exploring the remaining watershed streams of the upper Nicomekl River in Langley BC, Canada. Building upon lessons from childhood, adolescent adventures went further afield taking advantage of Western Canada's vast natural areas. These experiences established a true and unwavering reverence for the natural world within Jesse. Harnessing his keen interest in natural systems, he earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Victoria. Jesse Lemieux is motivated by a sincere and genuine concern for the long term survival of the human species and our need for healthy ecosystems.

Upon leaving University he spent the formative years of his life at Misty Meadow nursery. It was at Misty Meadow Nursery, while learning the fundamentals of perennial plant propagation, production grafting, and farm management, that a passion for agricultural systems took root. Following a brief period operating heavy machinery, in the field of environmental reclamation, Jesse went on to Pursue Permaculture full-time.

Jesse's thorough training in Permaculture included two permaculture design certificates (PDC), under the instruction of both Geoff Lawton and Bill Mollison and intensive hands on practice at the Permaculture Research Institute. Jesse's Practical work experience in Permaculture has been undertaken in Western Canada, Australia and the Middle East.

In September 2008 Jesse his wife Tanya founded Pacific Permaculture, a permaculture design and education company. Jesse and Tanya are fully committed to the dissemination of permaculture and its ethics. They divide their time between teaching permaculture, design consulting, and establishing the "Permaculture Research Institute of Canada."



Potato Patch Redux

This is more old news than an update but we are getting ready to prepare for another planting and reflecting on past experiences. This was one strategy we used last year to build and produce. Viva la pomme de Terre!
