Joseph Todd started learning backyard gardening from his grandfather in 2006. Since then an interest in the discipline took off exponentially. Around the same time global problems such as environmental degradation, peak oil, and poverty all caught his attention and led him closer towards a permaculture path. Moving from a personal interest in chemical engineering associated with photovoltaics to a similar approach involving biomimicry, he found himself involved with the concept of ecosystem mimicry which is a fundamental tenant of permaculture.
Along with his childhood friend Sean Powers, they completed Andrew Faust's Spring 2010 Permaculture Design Course based out of New York City. Since then they've created a group with Costa Boutsikaris (Who graduated from Andrew Faust's Fall 2010 Design Course) called Gardens Reviving Our World or simply GROW. The groups first major project is restoring an abandoned community garden in New Brunswick, New Jersey where Joseph and Costa currently attend Rutgers University. Check out their progress at:
