Javan Bernakevitch, with his signature good humor created an inviting space for learning during the Permaculture Design course.
Working with an incredibly diverse group of students – some with active permaculture projects, others with no experience, Javan thoughtfully met people where they were and gently guided each student to greater understanding of permaculture design.
Javan models permaculture principles by actively demonstrating care for the planet, care for people, and fair share. Each interactive session with the group Bernakevitch used real life examples of how these principles work in a variety of situations.
Javan is a thoughtful instructor who kindly guides students to success.
