Seattle Organizers and Partners
Tech Nerd to Disaster Nerd to Regenerative Responder. Site Steward in training, host of fossil fuel free group camping infrastructure classes.
Professional background in building codes and design. Involvement with permaculture groups and sustainable Ballard.
I am a teacher and student, lifelong Cascadia resident and mother of two.
I’m here mostly to listen, learn, and be adjacent to this community. My family moved here, from Louisiana, when I was a baby; I’ve grown up and made a home here ever since. Because of the slight cultural dissonance between the South and the PNW, and my affinity for this area, I’ve always been searching for more rootedness here.
I have a practical interest in affordable and climate friendly building methods, an intellectual interest in permaculture, and much concern for the overall welfare of the bioregion.
Dreamseed is an arts collective and retreat center offering natural spaces to host healers, artists, yoga instructors, ceremony guides and teachers to share their gifts with eager participants. Dreamseed Arts Collective members also present their works at festivals and community dance events around the Cascadia region.
I’m a civic and service designer creating systems-based solutions to renewable energy transition, circular economy, and inclusive economic development. I use collaborative design techniques to create accessible and practical civic engagement tools.
I help lead Circular PNW and NextCycle Washington and early stage for NextCycle Oregon
