Meet the team

Sunseed is a project of constant transition and knowledge-sharing. All our voluntary staff members offer their skills and energy to support our mission of low-impact living and environmental integrity. From self-sustainability and green energy, to community living, all our visitors gain practical experience to replicate in their own countries around the world.
Leon studied energy mechanical engineering and specialized in heat technology. During his studies he grew more and more distant from being in the conventional work environment, which focused on money and 9 to 5 weeks, while disregarding climate change and the imminent collapse completely. Sunseed offered him a safe haven of practical knowledge far beyond his studies. Music is his favourite companion.

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.
