Juergen Soecknick & Sabina Arokiam, Embun Pagi
Sabina is the founder of Embun Pagi, and Juergen joined hands in the effort since the last year. Together this duo are pioneering permaculture education in Malaysia, and intend to facilitate its growth in the country and in South East Asia
Sabina studied Permaculture & Ecovillage Design in Oregon, US. In her travels to Chiang Mai, and US, she visited numerous permaculture initiatives, and was inspired to put what she has learnt into practice here in Malaysia. In 2 years she has managed to set up a flourishing demonstration & education site, and has organised 3 PDC’s and several workshops in Malaysia.
With a background in Biology, Juergen found the missing link in his studies and the challenges of the present time in Permaculture. Since then, the Austrian has been traveling to New Zealand, Australia, Thailand and Indonesia where he interned at several permaculture farms and learned under teachers like Joe Polaisher, Geoff Lawton, Chakra Widia and many more. He is focussed on promoting and teaching Permaculture as well as building up Embun Pagi as an education and demonstration site.
