Please help us connect neighborhoods and tell us which area of San Diego you live in (East SD? North County? UTC? etc.).


What areas of permaculture are you most interested in? Specifically, don't just say everything.

soil improvement, CO2 retention, water saving techniques

Why are you joining the group? Specifically, what are you looking to get out of it?

We bought an organic lemon orchard and just learned we are too small these days to hire a marketer (cost of labor/gas). We need another plan/market. Willing to grow food to donate if water wasn't such an issue/expense. We want to improve the soil, and the health of the trees, and grow our own food.

How much permaculture knowledge do you have? 1-10 (1 = None, 10 = Sepp Holzer)

5 . Experiment, have viewed Geoff Lawton's CD's. I compost , I have a worm bin, experimenting with hugelkultur, and swales. have a home garden.

How much land do you currently have to work with?

2 acres of lemons and a variety of other fruit trees, 2- 35 years old. They are water starved.


Retired from teaching to be a farmer and soil rejuvenator with compost and worm boxes. Have a lemon orchard in Encinitas and large garden with chickens. Had hoped to do art too but where is the time? Would love to meet others with similar passions.
