About Michael Newby

Jack of all trades type, I've done chemistry/radiation controls in the Navy, programming/testing for Hewlett Packard all the way to logging in the Pacific Northwest with many detours and side trips along the way. I am currently a certified Arborist and owner/operator of a small tree service in the remote mountains of Northern California.

A number of years ago I started to notice the word permaculture popping up more and more while looking into various things that I was interested in. My tipping point, the moment I decided that permaculture was a valid system not just some passing green fad, was when I first saw Geoff Lawton's Greening the Desert videos. Since then I have been dedicated to understanding the different facets involved with permaculture and spreading the passion whenever/wherever I can.

I am currently working on building the consulting side of my business as well as developing my 14 acre property into a permaculture demonstration site as well as a permaculture based camp resort offering various courses on natural living.
