Serving as the Executive Director of The Ecology Center, Evan Marks believes in a world that gives more than it takes. With his background in permaculture and agroecology, and, having worked extensively in California and Hawaii and internationally in Costa Rica, Peru, Mexico, Ghana and Nigeria, Evan Marks knows that people have the ability to directly impact the environment through individual change
Based in San Juan Capistrano, The Ecology Center is a non-profit educational center, that engages individuals, families, and students in fun, hands-on activities that teach practical, environmental solutions at the household and community level. On a mission to provide creative solutions for thriving on planet earth, they believe everyone should have access to the tools, knowledge, and skills that promote healthy communities and an abundant future for all.
Evan now resides just down the highway from The Ecology Center in Oceanside, CA with family. They have turned their property into an urban homestead, complete with edible gardens, rainwater catchment systems, chickens, and an outdoor living space larger than the indoor space.
