A Certified Permaculture Designer with an BS in Design, Gavin has set the standard for dynamic forest design.
In years past you would have found Gavin sitting in contemplation at the forest edge as he endeavored to reach a deeper understanding of the natural world. Growing up in the woods
Gavin was granted a sense of the delicate and brutal cycle of life. With help from the plants he loves Gavin wishes to bring you all the growth, health, and beauty the forest can offer.
His apprenticeship at an organic farm taught him the challenges of food production. He realizes now that if we want to have quality food we must start growing it ourselves.
Now a partner at Woods of Plenty, Gavin finds himself at the intersection of design, science, better living, the natural world and non-toxic food.
Jeff received his BS in Electrical Engineering from Penn State UP in 2010 with a Certificate in Engineering and Community Engagement and a focus on horticulture.
After graduating, Jeff became a two-time Penn State Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship Fellow. He then attended Northwestern University where he earned his MS in Biomedical Engineering in 2014 with a Certificate in Global and Ecological Health Engineering. Jeff has implemented solar energy conversion systems, preventive healthcare systems, food preservation systems, invasive plant management systems, and agroforestry systems.
While his ventures have been diverse, his passion for the forest has been steadfast. Woods of Plenty is the crossroads of it all for him and he seeks to help you discover the most productive system on this planet: forests.
