Tracy Matfin is an educator turned farmer, mother and permaculture instructor. She is a founding member of La’akea Community, www.permaculture-hawaii.com, where she has been living and experimenting with sustainability for over ten years. Tracy grew up in the S.F. bay area, CA. She studied environmental science at U.C. Berkeley, and went on to be a high school science teacher for a decade. Tracy excels in making education meaningful and retain-able through her use of real life examples and hands on projects. She has been teaching permaculture since 2010. Tracy loves sitting with trees, communing with the “weeds” she is removing from the garden and laughing with her daughter, Aia’ala, friends and family.

“Tracy’s passion comes through in her teaching. Her positive, engaging energy transformed the group & kept us alert and ready for more.” – PDC Participant
