Céline is an all-around water-woman, trained as a windsurfing instructor at the prestigious Glénans sailing school in France. Cured from an immune deficiency through herbalism at the age of ten, Céline was mesmerized by the power of plants early on. Determined to uncover the best way to feed the world sustainably, alongside her degrees at Cornell and Oxford Universities, Céline volunteered on countless farms to better understand how to harness the power of nature through biomimicry. She developed a passion for perennial crops and agroforestry systems due to their ability to provide food and an array of other ecosystem services such as carbon sequestration— of paramount importance to remain within our ‘planetary boundaries’. Digging deeper into food issues, Céline soon became aware of the issue of plastic pollution and waste in general. This lead her to utilizing her food systems knowledge to address plastic pollution via Plastic Tides. She’s the one planting fruit trees at events, foraging wild herbs and food during expeditions and educating people about permaculture.
