Moving to the area soon!

Hello world!

I'm returning to QC after 20 years living in Europe, Asia and more recently NYC. I'll be moving to my little patch of land in Lanaudière beginning of June where I will develop an off-the-grid permaculture homestead and live a saner, simple life.

I'd like to network with local Permies or other like-minded people and hopefully develop a local guild.

Some of my various interests and areas of knowledge are:

  • permaculture (PDC in the coming months, I worship Sepp Holzer!)
  • home orchard (I took a course with Daniel Reid at the botanical garden)
  • eco-construction
  • cob, earth bags, straw bale, cordwood (5 days cordwood workshop with Rob Roy)
  • sustainable water use
  • DIY swimming ponds
  • composting toilets
  • transition network
  • renewable energy
  • rocket stoves
  • alternative transportation
  • developing local food networks
  • social & eco activism
  • simple living (working through Your Money or Your Life now)
  • willow structures and basketry (several courses with Nathalie Levasseur and Kim Vergil)
  • mushrooms cultivation
  • wild harvested food
  • food preservation (cellaring, drying, canning etc...)
  • herbalism (trained at La Bottine Aux Herbes)
  • DIY home cleaning & personal care products (various courses)

I'm also a passionate vegan cook, a WSET certified wine enthusiast and a bike lover.

Please drop me a line (je parle aussi français y español perro muy mal). I look forward to meeting you all!
