Jesse Labbe-Watson came to permaculture over the last decade by way of the movements for social and environmental justice. Over the last decade he has come to agree with the idea that "all the world's problems can be solved in the garden." After a brief apprenticeship at Earthaven Ecovillage in North Carolina, Jesse formally studied permaculture with Charles and Julia Yelton at the Newforest Institute and Humustacia Gardens. He graduated from their Advanced PDC in October 2008.  He has gone on to start a permaculture landscape design/build and sustainability consultation firm in the Midcoast area.  He has consulted for private residents, farmers, orchardists, market gardens, and non-profit organizations. He is the primary organizer for the Midcoast Permaculture Network which hosts workshops, meetups and potlucks.  He was a principal logistics coordinator for the 2010 Northeast Regional Permaculture Convergence hosted at the MOFGA fairgrounds. In 2012 he began co-teaching Permaculture Design Certification courses with Lisa Fernandes of the Resilience Hub, based in Portland. Jesse brings an artist’s paintbrush, a philosopher’s pedantry, a tracker’s attention to detail and a holy fool’s comedic relief to the company he keeps.  He lives with his young family in Rockland.
