Jeff has played a major role in the sustainable and regenerative communities movement – having co-founded the Ecovillage Network of the Americas (ENA) and Living Routes Ecovillage Study Abroad in 1997 and as Ecovillage Director at Sirius Community until 2001. Jeff has provided integrated systems and renewable energy design, consulting and installation in rural villages, businesses, governments and sustainability projects all over the world since the 1980s.
Jeff’s prime passion is to illuminate a new paradigm in economics. Grounded in a long cultivated understanding of sacred economics and numerous initiatives in creating Commons, Jeff works closely with the Metacurrency Project and recently developed a revolutionary model for collective wealth co-creation and stewardship – the Wealth Stewardship Pattern.
Jeff co-founded VillageLab in 2012 whose talented team is now busy building the RegenSolutions process and framework for the systematic research, development, demonstration, replication and dissemination of regenerative best practices for communities of purpose, practice and place.
When not actively engaging in regenerative community work, Jeff tends to find himself in wilderness – tuning into life amongst the woods, rivers and beaches of northern California and Oregon or the mountains of the Southwest.
