Organic Gardens Coordinator
Since she was a child, Vega has been curious about how different cultures understand and relate to the nature around them. These interests and special connection with the Pachamama led her to study a BsC in International Development and the Environment. Focusing on environmental anthropology and traditional environmental knowledge and techniques as tools for a sustainable development. During her university studies she also discovered how happy she was to share experiences, learn and teach about nature. After working in different environmental NGOs and as an environmental educator in Spain, Bolivia and the UK, Vega came to Sunseed ready to grow as a person, share knowledge and demonstrate that a more sustainable lifestyle in harmony with Pachamama is possible.
