Ben Marchman


Ben was raised in Sharpsburg GA, on land that generations of ancestors have stewarded. His most precious childhood memories include the endless adventures with family, building forts, paddling rivers, camping, and exploring the natural world.

From early 2003 to present he has experienced many different career paths accumulating extensive knowledge in nature connected coaching & life coaching, deep nature connection mentoring, wilderness guiding, habitat restoration, arboriculture, education(K-12), and permaculture design. All of these experiences have led him into creating and founding NatureLink,LLC in 2018.

Ben’s life vision is to help restore people’s mind, body, and spirit to the natural world, so that we become fully present in repairing our culture, communities, and Planet.
