How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
I plan to implement my self study of Permaculture in creating a sustainable homestead in our area. Raise small children in this environment and create community with families and persons with similar goals. I hope to eventually bring these experiences and understandings of human health as a reflection of environmental health to patients in a local medical practice. ( I am an allopathic physician transitioning to natural medicine - food based).
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I believe living closer to the Earth and in accordance to its laws is essential for people in attaining a true sense of purpose and happiness both physically and spiritually. I see the transition movement as a movement for the preservation of the human race.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
self study permaculture and related sustainable topics and implementation on our 1.5 acre home in northern ca
self study herbalism
self study energy medicine
study of childhood development and nature
mother - currently homeschooler waldorf/unschooling
commitment to local CSAs
What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
I am moving to Templeton CA this summer and I hope to meet families and persons with similar interests to help one another create our own sustainable living spaces to create/produce sustainable local exchanges/ communities for the promotion higher qualities of life. I would like to learn more about and participate in cob building and food forest design and implementation.
