I am interested in attending your upcoming event concerning Stormwater Management through Landscape.
I live with many home systems that may fit the permaculture model on a small, urban scale. I have worked with worm and traditional compost. I have some home food production including eggs from chickens, and annual/perennial plants. I have working and ever-increasing knowledge of local, native plant communities - woodland, prairie, wetland. I have read, in part, some of the classic Permaculture literature from Mollison and Holmgren. That said, I acknowledge doing as a learning tool far above reading, especially when it comes to living systems and living with systems. Before moving to Chicago, I lived in Tucson, AZ, which is where my love and curiosity for water - as it falls, and as it flows - was born.

Let's re-wild! How can we reconcile urban habits with the offerings and needs of our less and less wild natural places? I want to see living systems thrive. Our environment is our first teacher - let's make it a good one.
