(projects i'm involved in)
First identifying as an artistic film-maker, I moved to rural New Hampshire in 1973 to teach 6th grade ecology in the field, live cooperatively/simply, roam the forests, heat with wood and grow vegetables organically. In '76 I became an anti-nuclear activist and a few years later a husband and father of two sons. Worked for a while as a corporate instructional designer and team leader before assisting my wife with her independent consulting business and its conversion to a regional nonprofit employing others (focus: energy efficiency programs and policies).
I knew of permaculture from '70s CoEvolution Quarterly, but wasn't pulled in until I witnessed Dave Jacke and Jono Neiger questioning the invasive species paradigm at a NOFA summer conference.
I am bringing a mentoring option to permaculturists ("Meaningful Makeovers") and I intend to teach Introduction to Permaculture and some other topics, from workshop to 2-day formats. I wish to contribute to PDCs, but have no plans to lead them.
