Profile Information

How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
Currently organizing the Sierra Permaculture Guild in Grass Valley / Nevada City, CA to provide permaculture education, networking, and outreach to those who are interested in creating sustainable human habitats. As principal of Sierra Permaculture Design, I help those who wish to live more sustainably create their own self-sufficient homesteads and foodsheds.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I believe that permaculture is an integral part of the Transition movement. As such, I try to cross pollinate the perma-message with affinity groups in the local area including APPLE-NC and The Local Food Coalition.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
Permaculture, film/video production, online marketing, organic gardening/farming, soil building, water catchment, food forests, herbal and wildcrafted medicine, community organizing, Earth-based spirituality, yoga, tantra, inventing, improvising, networking, and co-creating.
Your Personal Website (if you have one)
What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
Education and hands-on experience with growing food and designing sustainable human habitats at the local level. I am also interested in how non-dogmatic spirituality (i.e. Yoga, Tantra, Shamanism, Earth-based traditions) can be incorporated into the Transition process at the most basic level: Zone 0, the personal level.
