I am a cartographer, bureaucrat, gardener, ecologist, organizer, and activist, working in the Puget Sound restoration industry. I am cultivating mobile bio-cultural restoration field stations, a regional natural resource governance wiki and original works in bioregional cartography in addition to working for pay on restoration funding, ecosystem service quantification and providing technical assistance to local, tribal, state and federal restoration partners. Before that I worked in landscape construction and agroforestry.
I’m a Canadian prairie farm kid turned grocer turned regen ag accelerator. I owned a seasonal grocery store whose focus was on local, in season regenerative and organic foods.
I kickstarted the savory institute hub in Manitoba and then spent the last 3.5 years living in New Zealand working with a start up who was seeking to “make regenerative action valuable”
I’m a regen ag enthusiast and am interested in how bioregional economies (social capital, financial capital, knowledge etc) can bring abundance.
I like being outside, walking in forests, swimming in rivers, gardening, food, people, music, and doing the doing.
A loose knit network of people and organizations interested in Permaculture moving forward and Whatcom County. How can we best showcase and implement regenerative design strategies throughout the county. Providing food, fiber, medicine, and resilient social systems while restoring the ecosystem.
Our members grow, select & store seeds from plants that express genetic strengths adaptable to our soils & changing weather, or unique heirloom qualities that could enhance the resiliency of our local food system.
We advance our mission through a regional Salish Sea network of seed-saving gardeners – farmers & advocates, through organizing & attending regional seed swaps supporting open exchange of seeds, through workshops and educational demonstrations at public events, and by researching, building and acquiring appropriate-scale seed processing equipment and storage facilities.
All about permaculture and local, regenerative food systems and would like to participate more in creating local (urban) food systems that EVERYONE can participate in/have access to. Community heals ❤️ I’m also a Reiki practitioner and healer. The collective trauma and grief everyone is experiencing on this planet right now is something I also feel called to address and be of service to help heal.
WE began in 2006 as Beat the Heat then joined the Transition Town movement in 2011. Our focus is on building community resilience through offering projects that enroll community members to volunteer to do the projects. For last 3 years we have facilitated the Garden to Kitchen Classes at the middle school, Share the Bounty boxes spring to fall, (provides free organic food to the community at large via donations from private gardeners and the school gardens), Forest Monitoring, part of a regional project coordinated by Dave Peterson of UW, and this year we began the Seed Share library at our public library. We just hired a part time program coordinator who we hope will find grants to support her in a full time position. We have a board of 7 members, who drive the decision making for TF (many create and lead these projects).
