Javan is a gifted agent for positive change on the planet. As an instructor, he is eloquent, well-rounded, knowledgeable and bright. He is able to adapt to the needs and interests of the participants, and is energetic enough to keep offering ideas and support through break times. As one participant described, Javan channels information to us as from a fire hose.
In the months leading up to the course, circumstances shifted multiple times. Javan remained professional and was able to confer and advise me (as a neophyte organizer) at each turning point. He was generous with time and knowledge on course promotion and building community. In fact, he suggested I run a monthly gathering to begin the process of networking and bringing like minds together. It was a successful endeavour indeed.
When the course finally ran, we had a great turn out of enthusiastic folks whose expectations were met, and surpassed. Javan was able to competently and sensibly channel solid and inspiring information. He subtly adapted it to stakeholders like a local city manager and teachers participating in the course, as well as to drop-in visitors such as our supportive local mayor and a doubtful city councillor.
I will always appreciate his efforts towards the inception of our local urban agriculture community. I look forward to opportunities to cross paths with Javan in the future. My best wishes to him as he continues to follow and share his bliss while encouraging others to do the same.

Thanks so much for everything Javan.
I really appreciate your dedication to facilitating people on their pathway to success.
I gained a lot of insight to areas for me to dive in deeper to understand how to organize my business. The tools you shared have already helped me to clarify things for myself and will continue to serve the people I work with.
I’m grateful for all you do and all you’ve done for me.

Javan’s course, teaching right livelihood with holistic management, has been one of those rare opportunities to challenge my longstanding belief that I need to sacrifice my happiness in order to be successful. Instead of choosing a goal and letting my lifestyle be fluid around it, I can embrace my ideal lifestyle and my goals become fluid to support it. This is a game changer.
Many courses I’ve taken are full of lofty ideas and great intentions, but fall short on specifics. Javan’s course provided me with more than a pipe dream; I got a roadmap.
I have real peace of mind after working with Javan. The knowledge that I’m working toward my ideal lifestyle, and having tools to guide my decisions in the moment, gives me a profound sense of lightness. I’ve found I have more creative energy in my whole life, like I have been unburdened by an anxiety I didn’t know I was carrying.
Work with Javan if you’re unsure how to have the lifestyle you want, doing what you love, without selling your soul.

The Galiano Conservancy Association contracted Javan as a resource person to help design a permaculture food forest at our Learning Centre site. Javan, in partnership with Richard Walker, facilitated a community design session, developed our site plan and delivered a 2 day workshop on food forest theory followed by a 3 day practicum at our site. Working with Javan is a pleasure, he is professional, passionate, creative and effective in communicating his deep knowledge of permaculture and food forest design. When it came to promoting the workshop and sourcing plants and materials for our site we benefited from Javan’s extensive network of connections in the permaculture community. The workshop received rave reviews from participants, they left energized, inspired and equipped with a solid foundation in food forest theory along with a practical set of skills.
