Terry Meer is a passionate advocate for nature, sustainability, and the profound interconnection between humans and the environment. His upbringing on a sailboat in the Florida Keys instilled in him an early appreciation for our limited natural resources and a deep love for the rhythms of the Earth. With a background in human behavior and a specialization in working with non-verbal children with Autism, Terry’s career as a Behavior Analyst provided him with a unique perspective on human interactions and a deep understanding of the power of listening without words.

Driven by his unwavering love for nature and a desire to foster a deeper connection between humans and the natural world, Terry embarked on a journey into the field of Sacred Ecology. Through workshops and studies with renowned experts such as John Jeavons, Eric Toensmeier, John Milton, and Sandra Ingerman, Terry honed his knowledge and embraced the principles of permaculture, regenerative living, and the wisdom of nature.

Throughout his life, Terry has actively engaged in community building projects, including community gardens for the homeless, organic gardens for children with autism, and free permaculture courses for low-income families. His consulting work has ranged from small-scale backyard gardens to large installations like Sustainable Kashi in Sebastian, Florida on an 80-acre intentional community focused on permaculture demonstration sites and off-grid eco-village development.

As a teacher and speaker, Terry has traveled the globe, sharing his expertise on permaculture and closed-loop ecosystems. From the United States to New Zealand, Costa Rica to Australia, Panama to the Bahamas, his classes have inspired individuals to embrace sustainable practices and nurture a deep connection with the planet we all share. Terry’s dedication to bridging the gap between ecology and the human heart has been instrumental in building a bridge between people and the natural world.

Terry’s work has been featured in Oprah Magazine, and his book, “Simple as That,” serves as a guide to unlock a life overflowing with abundance, happiness, and inner harmony using the patterns of nature as a blueprint. Through his teachings, writings, and projects, Terry strives to create a world where humanity lives in harmony with nature, nurturing the well-being of individuals and the planet we call home. His commitment to the Sacred Ecology philosophy continues to inspire and empower others to embrace a regenerative lifestyle and forge a brighter future for all.
