I was absorbed in gardening "permaculture style" for 6 years on a piece of land at the top of Queens. I was working on a documentary about why the town of Reston was developed. Why are't there more pedestrian communities with village centers if this is what people are seeking? Over the past decade there has been a movement toward more walkable communities, like where I grew up -- "historic" Reston. People call it an experiment. Since then I have interviewed the founder, the original developer, Mr Robert E Simon, and other elders about early Reston. A town that was to be about people not buildings.

Yes all the above. Although MoS is a wordpress theme I use for the non-profit, I have designed many web sites (with programmers). I work with companies to design promotions, packaging, their logos, web sites. Understanding Permaculture Design thinking is very helpful for all businesses.

Fun to have so many wonderful people in one place and a squished delightful reception. We continued at Jimmy's No 43 afterwards.
