Scott Gallant is an agroforester, food system designer, and permaculture educator with a vision and passion for developing productive landscapes. He has been working at Rancho Mastatal Sustainability Education Center (Mastatal, Costa Rica) since 2009, where he leads an industrious team to cultivate 15 acres of emerging tropical agroforest. Scott is passionate about regenerative agriculture, holistic thinking, ethnobotany, community development, and re-skilling, and teaches Permaculture Design Certification courses in Costa Rica and Nicaragua.

He and his partner Laura have traveled extensively in Latin America, leading to a love of its culture, food, and ecosystems. When he's not designing landscapes, he still makes time to hike, bike, read, and work on his basketball jump shot and frisbee throw.  Scott  writes for the Permaculture Research Institute and has been featured on the Permaculture Voices podcast. He graduated from Wabash College in 2008 with a degree in Economics.
