I've got an appetite to learn, get involved, and connect with other permies.
I'm fairly new to the subject, no formal training or coursework, yet. I do have hands on experience creating a permaculture garden and cob building, which I did at the Los Angeles Arboretum. Also worked for several months on an organic veggie farm in Washington state.
Sheet mulching, cob building, chicken coop construction, chicken care, rabbit care, kombucha brewing, making homemade natural cleaning & personal care alternatives...there's probably more I'm forgetting.
I've been moving towards permaculture for years without knowing it had a name. As a co-organizer, my hope is to help foster regular gatherings and create ongoing discussions, learning, and connection in the Chicagoland permaculture community.
Every time I get to hang out with this awesome group it is the highlight of my week. There's always so much enthusiasm, knowledge, and resources to be shared.
