Florian Kroll is the programme head at Siyakhana Initiative for Ecological Health and Food Security at the University of the Witwatersrand. He has worked in the field of South African permaculture since 2004, with particular interest in food security, ecological design, nutrition, ethnobotany, and ecological health promotion. Permaculture is sustainable land use design based on naturally-occurring ecological and biological principles, intended to minimise work, eliminate waste, and increase productivity, while also preserving and restoring the natural environment. Through his work as a researcher, consultant, and designer, Florian advocates with representatives of government and corporations to increase awareness, support, and funding for urban permaculture.
