Resourcing communities to create a healthier more sustainable future

Creating a Neighborhood Garden

In my studies of sustainable agriculture and food forests I’ve come to own the importance of a little wildness in the garden.  We create room for plants and critters to work out who is doing what.  It seems the same can be said about our communities.  Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and so together we can emphysize our strengths and overcome our weaknesses.  So we love the idea of Neighborhood Gardens where the land, labor, expertise, and money can flow into a process that creates community, connection with nature, and a lot of great local seasonal healthy food.

Here is a site in Sonoma that sees things a little differently but are mostly aligned with how we see this evolving.

I’m a UC Master Gardener with a huge interest in growing my own food, beekeeping, medicinal herbs and living sustainably. I also have a passion to share these journeys with like minded souls. I work with many off site communities and manage an educational organization and two outdoor learning facilities.
