Takota Coen was born and raised on the Coen Farm in central Alberta, where his family has managed their land according to organic agricultural principles for 26 years. With the help of community-supported agriculture, they have begun transitioning their land into a perennial based agricultural system. By facilitating connections between a variety of livestock, fruit and nut trees and the patterns of the land itself, they hope to mimic the health and diversity of a natural ecosystem. In addition to farming, Takota is a permaculture and holistic land consultant where, through his experience and love for the land, he works to empower others with the tools and resources to design and implement resilient living systems that are earth restorative. He holds two Permaculture Design Certificates from The Permaculture Research Institute, two Holistic Management Certificates from Holistic Management International, and a Red Seal Journeyman Certificate for Carpentry.
