What Green area do you have knowledge in that you want to share?

I worked for the Inspector General in Washington DC and evaluated the EPA's climate change and Toxic Substance Control (how chemicals are approved and regulated in the U.S.) programs. I have recently finished my doctorate course work in environmental corporate management and sustainable farming methods. My wife and I co-own an organic farm in Cheatham County with my son's family, where we have builit a LEED platinum home. I teach a graduate course in sustainable food practices at Lipscomb. Also, I am a board member of the Cumberland River Compact and am a principal for a sustainable agriculture grant.

What help do you want to achieve your green goals?

Learning more about soil chemistry and plants

Introduction

I am a returning Tennessean. Having moved to this region in 2010, I'm interested in making Middle Tennessee more resilient in producing and consuming more local products, thus, making it a stronger, connected commuity.

What John P. is saying about this Meetup Group

The Council has been very helpful in publicizing and promoting these NWEI courses.
