Jacob Evans

Wizard permaculture

Having stepped out of normal life in England at 19, Jacob Evans has been on a journey of cultural exploration, working and studying in organic farms and sustainable living centres in Spain, Thailand and Latin America. 

His diverse experiences in varied climates and contexts has shaped his passion for permaculture, local food production and regenerative agriculture, which he is now implementing at Suryalila Retreat Centre as the Farm Manager of their nonprofit permaculture farm Danyadara

Since arriving in June 2016, Jacob has planted over 6000 trees, manages the organic olive orchard, edible landscaping and animal rotation while observing the land and improving the eco system function year after year. He has transformed the dry landscape into a green oasis filled with Mediterranean vegetation through intelligent design and is on a mission to transform agriculture in Andalusia.
