I was always interested in permaculture. One day I learned there was a word for it. I don't remember what day that was, but I became very happy then.

At Children's Magical Garden we apply social & physical permaculture. I'm on the boards of NYCCGC & More Gardens! with a specifically social permaculture agenda. With my partner I'm also looking for land for a retreat center for community gardeners-- again emphasizing the social aspects of permaculture, as well as group healing/ ability to thrive as a team long-term. I'm focused on the spiritual (non-denominational) aspects of nature and how they help heal individuals & communities. katetemplewest.com is where I write about that.

Community development. I want more empowerment of diverse communities. My area is with youth development and empowerment. Children and youth get it. They just need the tools. I'd love to see more youth scholarships to good permie programs and am working to make that happen.
I'm a writer, herbalist & director of Children's Magical Garden on the L.E.S. We need more permies help there! please email at [masked] More about my work Art+Nature=Magic at katetemplewest.com
