In 2016 I started in the drought stricken island of Curacao to create food forest. Because of the success of the first food forest I was offered a job by the minister of agriculture (GMN) Suzy Carmelia Romer to create educational demonstration food forests. In 2019 I organized for the ministry a 5 days intensive course syntropic agroforestry, to be followed a year later by another beginners and an advanced course. As a way of thanking me for my contribution in the syntropic food forest revolution I was sent to Kenya where Willis Orum organized the first course in Kenya to be followed by many more courses.
Syntropic Agroforestry bridges the gap between ecology and economy. It makes reforestation very attractive for farmers and thus increases the survival rate for planted trees drastically. As we say the vegetables finance the forest of the future.
Syntropic and Permaculture Solutions is dedicated to regenerate our beautiful earth and make it bountiful again as how it used to be. We are guided by our syntropic understanding that nature always moves forward in successive stages from entropy to syntropy, from simple to complex. It is our duty as mankind to accelerate those processes to restore what has been damaged while bridging the gap between ecology and economy. I provide trainings and consultancy to align people with natural regenerative knowledge that once was ours already.
