About the Instructor
Hunter Wolf’s love for soil began as a WWOOFER in 2013. This was when he
first heard about Permaculture, & began to study/practice ways to try live in harmony with the Earth.

Wanting to deepen his understanding of soil, Hunter found the work of Dr. Elaine
Ingham founder of the Soil Food Web School. This education has given him a solid
foundation in soil microscopy assessment and a better understanding of how, through proper
management, we can improve degraded soil.
