Permaculture Magazine Award – Judges

About the judges

Andrew Zionts Abrams is a Permaculturist, designer, entrepreneur, teacher, facilitator and philanthropist and perhaps most importantly, an earth steward. Since 2014 Andrew has been a steward of Catalina where he lives on deforested steep slopes in the province of Cádiz, in Andalucia, Spain. Restoring the functionality of the ecosystem, this is a permaculture sanctuary where he’s designed and implemented a zero-runoff water retention landscape and reforestation project. In 2017 Andrew co-founded Abundant Earth Foundation, with a vision of equitable future care within the international Permaculture community. The foundation aims to pool support for grass-roots permaculture initiatives in places where resources are systemically scarce, and a little input can leverage major impact.

Anthony Rodale, a photographer, advocate for sustainability, and endurance athlete, has spent years travelling the world visiting sustainable, and organic farms, learning about their successful practices in soil regeneration, crop production, plant diversity, carbon sequestration, economic viability, food security and community health. This Spring, Anthony will be taking on a new leadership role as Board Chair for the Sustainable Food Trust. He has been President of the Sustainable Food Alliance since 2011. Before that served on other Boards such as the Rainforest Alliance, Friends of the Soil Association, and Board Chair of the Rodale Institute in Pennsylvania. In 1996 completed the Permaculture design course with Bill Mollison.
