I would like to build an irrigation system for our school garden that will enhance the productivity of the garden and help students see the value of thinking sustainably and creatively.
I am a woodworker and I'm good at innovation. I like to use hand tools to make fairly simply designed furniture and other useful and attractive projects for everyday life. I'm good at design thinking, thinking outside the box.
I would like to build an Earth Ship that stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer, runs on passive thermal, solar and wind power and has good interior lighting, functionality, comfort, grace and aesthetic beauty.
I teach service-learning at Eagle Rock High School in Estes Park. I'm interested in creating a "makerspace" focus at our school and would like to start by working with others engaged in this approach to learning and change, life & learning.
Friendly and engaging.
