Personal profile



Immo Fiebrig obtained his first degree Pharmaceutical Sciences at the LMU University of Munich, Germany in 1991, having built his foundation in the natural sciences. He began his research career in physical biochemistry at Nottingham University (UK), obtaining his Ph. D. in 1996. During this period he investigated biological macromolecules using a variety of analytical methods that complemented and validated one another. Later, as retail pharmacist, he played a role in importing first time from India a herbal medication made from Mucuna pruriens beans for a more naturopathic and gentle treatment of Parkinson´s disease whilst supporting the Dutch Parkinson Association on a pro bono basis to this date. He held various positions in clinical research and the publishing and advertising industries, being in charge of management of healthcare related knowledge and scientific data, before starting his editorial service business as freelance journalist and quality manager in 2002. Intrigued by nature and its conservation, fascinated by evolutionary biology and Sepp Holzer´s land restoration approaches, he fully immersed into agroecology after obtaining a permaculture certificate in 2011. In 2012 he co-authored a book on urban permaculture in German, followed by its English edition in 2013.

Vision Statement

During my later childhood in Mexico I was often touched by the beauty of extensive natural landscapes and its flora and fauna across different climate zones. At the same time I was appalled by the effects of rampant deforestation and the spoiling of beautiful habitats by human impact. Today, my research is driven by the vision of a human life thriving through co-operation rather than exploitation, where economics are consistent with ecology in view of a sustainable, healthier lifestyle. I wish to show that land restoration using permaculture approaches is an effective contribution to this vision.
