Rakesh – Roots ‘n’ Permaculture

Rakesh “Rootsman” Rak was born in the UK. He works around Europe and sometimes in India. He is the founder of Roots n Permaculture. The name comes from his background as a reggae DJ. Rakesh runs courses and workshops and has created Roots n Permaculture as a community of students that can support each other after their permaculture studies.

He is involved in trying to decolonize permaculture. Indigenous cultures already lived in harmony with nature and used their resources wisely. The colonizers, who have destroyed the natural world, have now repackaged indigenous values and branded them as “permaculture”.
