Northwest native pursuing permaculture as a solution to many of today's problems as well as the future of our planet. Recently completed a bachelor of science combining social science, new media and sustainable principles. A diverse path has led me to opportunities to learn gardening, marketing, property management, business management and new media. Since growing up in the Northwest, I've been able to learn from my environment and appreciate the abundance nature gives if we learn how to work with it.
My years at university exposed me to the many principles of permaculture and sustainable design, which I try to implement in all facets of my life. I've met some amazing people along the way who've inspired me to finally tackle my own project, Spring Forest Gardens.
I'm currently pursuing the knowledge to design my homestead into a productive and sustainable food forest. I'm interested in networking with like minded folks to share knowledge, resources and learning opportunities. Many more of the classes I've taken will be updated soon, as I locate contacts for the coursework.
Spring Forest Gardens:
Goals for improvements to the property include introducing beneficial and low-impact livestock: chickens, ducks, goats, and maybe even llama! An Edible Forest design will be adapted to existing fruit trees with a focus on guild planting for maximum yield. We also plan to develop the temperate forest into a more abundant productive edible wilderness to forage. Far future plans include using the site as a learning center to teach permaculture principles and encourage gardening for all walks of life, with a focus on youth and veterans.
