About Kelda Lorax

I've been practicing permaculture techniques since high school and really started honing my skills by a 2-year internship at the Bullocks Permaculture Homestead 2002-2004. Fascination about urban sustainability took me to Seattle and guided me to lead the web/modern creation of the Seattle Permaculture Guild, until I left the city years later. As people knew me as organizer for the Guild, and liked my 'start from basics/visual/hands-on' approach to Permaculture, I was asked to co-teach more and more classes. At the writing of this I've co-taught a handful of PDCs and lead the team for Tacoma PDCs.

I grew up in the suburbs learning zero about sustainability, but knowing its the most important thing I want to learn. I'm passionate about bringing permaculture to people who've always hoped something like this may be possible. I've also helped out after Hurricane Katrina and the Haitian earthquake, and think its a no-brainer to employ more permaculture techniques in disaster-stricken areas.

Presently, I live with my partner Nick and our baby Gela, with a handful of others in a shared house in Parkland. We've turned the house into a lively eco-community with many permaculture techniques in action. As a new mom I'm hoping to expand permaculture in the neighborhood and set up economic systems like I've done in the past that will help the gardens make money as a yield. (A new twist to the stay-at-home concept). We strongly advocate with our voices (and dollars) to make our region of town more socially just and self-reliant.
