Stefan grew up on a small farm in Quebec, Canada. Fascinated with the natural world he thought biologists save the world. He trained as a wildlife biologist then Mastered in animal behaviour. Realising biologists often measure the decline of populations he looked at what professions affect the land and realised landscape architects do. He obtained a Masters in Landscape architecture. Operated a landscape design office for 20 years specialising in designs to attract wildlife during which time he was a sessional lecturer at McGill University for 8 years teaching: fruit production, landscape plants and design, and natural history of vertebrates. Since 1988 a professional speaker with over 500 local and international presentations. Since 1992 is co-owner of a small 12 acre farm orchard that transitioned to organic upon purchase. Then operated as a certified organic monoculture apple orchard. In 1996 mostly removed, redesigned and in 1997 began replanting as a high biodiversity permaculture
orchard with a goal of generating $1 per/ft2. The result is documented in an educational film by Olivier Asselin “The Permaculture Orchard: Beyond Organic” and his new companion book to the film. Teacher, trainer, mentor, designer, farmer, father, all in a days work.
