Profile Information

About Me:
I am the new PDC Coordinator here at the Valley Permaculture Alliance. I'm excited to be a part of the VPA and look forward to not only interacting with you on this forum, but also in person.
I like to garden organically, cook/make food (and eat it, too!), and as much as I appreciate the low desert for all it has to offer, I like to escape to the land of the pines and camp and hike whenever I can.

Hi Renu,

Thank you for remembering me. things have changed @ GCCS since you were there. Tim left for greener pastures and a fellow gardener Ed Mendoza who came into your position is now the new garden coordinator.

I am still @ Ira Hayes High School in the garden coordinator role. I was hoping to attend last Saturdays class, but something came up and that moved the class out of my reach. I haven't been able to volunteer or attend classes as much as in years past, but since you are the new PDC coordinator I/m sure I will run into you at an upcoming event. I am hoping to catch the Mesquite milling event this time around....any idea if a date has been set?

Be Well,

david

BTW I have several friends in Chandler and could organize letters, council visits or other needed activites.  I have worked for the City of Chandler for 14 years.  There are some rules about my own advocacy as an employee but I can work through my surrogate (my better half Shannon).   I have found it is all about citizens pressuring council to make things happen.  Of course keeping the staff infomed and included is critical too.

Yes, we want to help.  My friend recommended inviting Chandler City Council to attend the Tour de Coop to build awareness.   We live in North Chandler, just relocated from Tempe. Anything we can do, we will.
