What brings you to the group?

My fantastic idealism / horrific ignorance about the workings of the natural world. It's time to put my money where my mouth is and learn some real skills that will sustain not only the earth, but also the fractured society we live in. I work as a developmental therapist and have a long-term dream to open a school to teach sustainable living skills to kids with autism... I know a lot about autism, but nothing about sustainable living. Just a hopeless city girl hoping to reform myself.

What is your experience with permaculture?

I'm thrifty. I have some house plants. I like to get dirty. I like to touch bugs.

Are there any skills/knowledge you could share? What are they?

People skills, writing and storytelling skills, organizing, ritual, enthusiasm and openness to learn.


I was born and raised in Chicago. I like dancing, yoga, performance poetry, energy work, weeping willows, beetles, and grizzly bears.
