    #09- Experiences Behind the Expertise- Robin Van Loon

    WE ARE BACK! Research Aromatica Season 02 is underway, and therefore so is the podcast!

    To start it all off we interview Robin Van Loon of Camino Verde.

    Founder and Executive Director of Camino Verde, Robin has lived in the Tambopata province of the Peruvian Amazon since 2004. A long-time student of traditional and indigenous agriculture and medicinal practices, his work has focused on developing community-based reforestation strategies to regenerate important endangered plants of the Amazon. He is a writer, regenerative designer, and consultant in agroforestry, reforestation, and regenerative development.

    In our conversation with Robin we discuss a variety of topics:
    The Amazon StereotypeThe backpacking trip that made him fall in love with PeruCamino Verde's three pronged approach to regenerative economicsDifferences between Rosewood Essential OilsAnd so much more!Memorable Quotes:
    "..and that doesn't just mean im going to plant my farm in a way that is similarly structured to how the forest is structured... I think it can go a step beyond the physicality. We can learn lessons from the landscape. We can learn lessons from the rainforest and one of those lessons for me is how diversity builds resilience - don't put all your eggs in one basket."

    #07- Experiences Behind the Expertise- Denzil Phillips

    Denzil has been described as the 'Sherlock Holmes' of plants. Denzil has over 40 years of experience in the plant aromatic field and trips to every corner of the world.  His experience is extraordinary, but its his perspective of both the plant and human world is that we dive into in this conversation.

    In our conversation with Denzil we discuss a variety of topics:
    How he overcame dyslexia and used it as a strength.His process of how he accepts projects.Why he never completed his phd, even after pursuing it 3 times.His thoughts on reshaping the academic systemMemorable Quotes:

    "I think Covid has proved one thing beyond doubt, the physical world of university is no longer needed.. its the social world of a university that matters. Meeting people at bars... you should be able to sign up for sing courses.. take one at University of Oregon, another at University of London, all online."

    "When I was young I always used to ask the professor (of major universities) if I can join you lecture... there is nothing stopping you from going into a lecture at Harvard, and asking, you mind if I sit in the back and listen?"
