Christos –

Grew up in Athens and got his Bachelor and Masters in computer engineering in the US. After working as an engineer for ten years in the telecommunication field and an International Formula 3 team, he felt the urge to change his city life, move to the countryside and reconnect with nature. Permaculture became his passion with a great interest in Natural Building. His engineering skills were transformed into designing and building houses and shelters using many different techniques, cob structures, natural plasters, rocket stoves, green roofs, wood ovens and anything that could be built with earth and materials that could be found in nature. Living in Re-Green for five years now and experimenting with lots of different practices, his experience has expanded into natural farming, renewable sources of energy, passive house architecture, water, earth works, composting and all that Pemaculture has to teach.
