They were both very much caught up in the race to reach the top of the career ladder in the media and advertising industries.
A career opportunity led them to move to Gibraltar, where they spent six amazing years living the expat lifestyle whilst working hard during the week and exploring the surrounding area of Andalusia and Morocco on the weekends. During this time Olof stumbled across Permaculture and learned about the peek oil crisis, which spurs them in to action to find a farm and get off the grid. They where both in love with Spain so it was the obvious place to settle and after months of searching they find “THE DREAM FARM”.
A down payment was placed on a beautiful rustic finca in the Los Alcornocales National Park, it was perfect. But a series of events unfolded which resulted in the farm being sold to another buyer. Anna and Olof were devastated at first, but as with so many things in life, permaculture had the answer…
“The problem is the solution”
With no farm, no children, no animals and no commitments, Anna and Olof were free to pursue their other life long dream of travelling the world. Now they could combine it with searching for that dream farm whilst learning about permaculture along the way. Thus the epic journey called The Ecoquest begins!
Anna, is now a fully fledged world explorer with the super powers to find the most amazing spots on the planet. With years of experience at the top of the corporate world, Anna has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to everything needed to run a successful business, be it online, on TV or in retail. Anna is motivated, engaged and focused to any task at hand.
Olof is an enthusiastic team player who gets stuck into whatever gets thrown at him. A Permaculture addict, he can recite all the words to Geoff Lawton’s videos. A long and successful career in the Graphic Design business has given him an edge in the Permaculture world when it comes to main frame design and creative problem solving. His new motto “the problem is the solution”
