What brings you to the group?

My interest in organics, farming and finding sustainable solutions to make urban areas green.

What is your experience with permaculture?

No actual experience: I'd just like to learn more about it.

Are there any skills/knowledge you could share? What are they?

I am currently researching the effects of genetically engineered food on human health and also want to begin a nonprofit to help people who live in food deserts in Chicago. I have a CDL B license, have published newsletters, and I have a background in systems analysis, programming and database management. I've also done some web design, although my experience is limited in that area.


I am interested in urban gardening and ways to grow fruits and vegetables in the unreliable Chicago climate. I have very little experience, however (no gardens to work in!) but want to make this an ongoing part of my life.
