Profile Information

About Me:
I'm an avid fan of dryland permaculture with a well-known urban permaculture site. My goals are to reduce Phoenix's urban heat island through appropriate urban food forests AND to see the Salt River run again in my lifetime.

I am a certified permaculture designer (taught by Geoff Lawton) and am working on my Permaculture Research Institute Teaching Certification. I'll also be interning at the "Greening the Desert" site in Jordan this Oct.
