Thiago is the director of Syntropic Farms and has been growing food since childhood. Thiago grew up as part of an Indigenous community that farmed within the forest, and is a pioneer of syntropic farming, developing several systems at Byron Bay Harvest. Initially the soil of the land was sandy and very lacking in nutrients, and he’s now growing lettuce, coriander, zucchini, mulberry and more. He facilitates workshops and helps farmers transition from conventional to regenerative practices common in Brazil, across Australia.
Life in Syntropy
Regenerative syntropic agroforestry mimics the natural processes of some the most abundant ecosystems on the planet – forests. Thiago will explain the forest, water and nutrient cycles and human function within these principles with a vision of producing an abundant food supply while regenerating the Earth.
Plants love growing close to one another – they talk to each other. Join Thiago and learn how you can plant many plants in small spaces and how they all have special roles to play to help each other to grow. Copy a rainforest.
