About Abel Pearson

Abel Pearson is a vegetable farmer, nature-based facilitator, permaculture educator and land steward listening for the stories we need to reconnect to land, food and seed. He believes that the kinds of growing and farming techniques we need for the future must come from a place of authentic relationship to the land, reverence for the life it provides for us and the wholehearted support of communities, gathered around a table or a smoking fire once again.
