AARON ELTON, Founder and Managing Partner
Over the last 8 years Aaron has dedicated himself to studying Permaculture design which has provided him with the tools and knowledge to prove that we can reforest the world, replenish the soils, and re-educate people very quickly to live sustainable lifestyles and practice sustainable agriculture. He has developed his own style of education and teaching which he calls “Culturally Relevant Education” and utilizes his success in proving the solutions to spark passion and lasting change in attitude within his students, helping them to become examples within their own communities.
His work inspired East Africa’s Largest steel corporation ‘Roofings Group’ to sponsor the development of a school called “The Roofings Forever Forestry Guild” which Aaron personally manages, teaching university students, church groups, orphanage managers, and the general public how to become truly sustainable advocates and practitioners within their respective roles in society while also enabling knowledge sharing and networking opportunities to its members.
He has also created his first farming company, ‘Priceless Farms’ with private investors and purchased a 100 acre parcel of farmland on the banks of the Nile River where this prototype farm will provide an example of how sustainable agriculture can be highly lucrative for investors while at the same time lucrative for its employees. The Obuntu project will be developed in this same region.
