Hometown: New York
May 20, 2011
I studied Sustainable Design at Goddard, which included studying New Alchemy and Permaculture.
No certification. My Sustainable Design teacher was Charles Woodard, and I've taken workshops with Dan Hemenaway (visiting scholar at my school) and Eric Toensmeier.
I am starting a garden with some neighbors at the corner of Putnam Ave and Patchen Ave in Brooklyn. Right now, we are still in remediation mode.
Water. Heating & Cooling. Compost and waste. LAUNDRY.
I'm work as a writer, bookseller and curator. I don't work very hard because I'm also a gardener. I used to be caretaker for a forest, where I had an orchard and a half-acre vegetable garden. Plots in Brooklyn are much smaller so I have three.
