Born in Yorkshire, England in 1953, Chris came to live in Ibiza after spending thirteen years travelling the world as a radio officer in the British Merchant Navy. He was one of the founding members and president of the local Friends of the Earth group in 1989. In 1993, he founded the CASITA VERDE model ecology centre, using a small rented house near San Jose. After trying unsuccessfully to establish a couple of different commercial Ecological Centres, including the 'Eivissa Ecolandia' pilot project during 2001, Chris decided to re-focus his attention on improving the facilities and potential of the CASITA VERDE. At the same time, and with the help of others, he began to develop the 'Green Heart' strategy plan, with the idea of including the whole island of Ibiza in a new and more global project.

During early 2003, Chris and Marc Osmo, our in-house graphic designer at the time, came up with the concept of making a '
Greenheart Project Farm', which would provide a platform for the development of ideas and projects of many people and which would be managed by a growing multi-national steering committee, under the umbrella of the not-for-profit organisation 'Fundación por el Futuro'.

Chris presently represents the "Foundation for the Future" in Ibiza, is president of the study group "
Ibiza Ecologic", and director of the model ecological centre at CASITA VERDE.

Wishing you all the best from Casita Verde,


Chris is one of the founders of the local Friends of the Earth group and the CASITA VERDE (Ibiza Ecology Centre), he is president of  "Ibiza Ecologic" (study group) and he initiated the 'Green Heart' strategy plan, for a regenerative Ibiza.
