River Richardson

Founder of Haven Earth PMA

Paul “River” Richardson is a Bio-Architect, visionary, and co-founder of Haven Earth PMA. After graduating Architecture school in London UK in 2002, River (which he prefers) has traversed the world of architecture internationally for almost two decades, designing and building at the highest level internationally. From custom homes to luxury hotels and resorts, River has managed to transmute his experience, and is now through Haven Earth, offering solutions for the many issues plaguing our built environment, and natural world today. Through the use and exploration of natural materials, River leverages his experience and knowledge to design and develop creative ‘heartfelt’ solutions for ecological projects of all scales. From his experience managing large scale projects and developments, River realized a huge opportunity was being misused, and set out to create the Haven Earth SEED Center, to transform the typically entropic building construction process, into an amazing platform for educating and training the youth to build the new agrarian economy as well as ways of living in connection with Nature. What we call ‘growing home’. River understands that Hemp has the power to reshape the world of construction and much more than that, and is dedicated to regenerating agricultural areas, and exposing the abundance that is hidden in the soil.
