Currently managing a food forest installation project at Pine Ridge reservation. We have several food forests we are working on, and we do spring planting every year. We accept interns/volunteers for this project and like to work with people with experience as well. We love collaborations and co-create, and there is no shortage of work that needs to be done at this reservation. We've planted 1000 trees and plants and want to plant 10,000 - many of them for wind breaks and shade, which can improve living conditions quite a bit.
Responded to earthquake disaster in Haiti by getting six sanitation/water experts there to save lives. Got two personnel from Ministry of Environment Haiti trained as permaculture designers in the US. Four of the six people have stayed active in Haiti, getting compost toilets and permaculture into use.
I'm doing a part time project as Coordinator for the Sustainable Urban Agriculture Coalition of St Petersburg, FL. This involves doing an asset map and "challenges" report for the city, best practices report and facilitating a strategic plan to expand sustainable urban agriculture in the city. Am very interested in hearing from others who are doing successful urban ag programs in urban areas and exchanging notes!
We're installing a community garden for Martin Luther King Coalition in Greenwood, FL. This project has an economic component as well, growing food for a living.
Designing and installing two demonstration sites in Tampa Bay area.
Has taught permaculture in Los Angeles, Pine Ridge reservation, Tuskegee University, Miami, Sarasota, and Tampa Bay, FL. Teaches the Permaculture Design Course, Food Forestry, and Intro to Permaculture weekend workshop as well as smaller specialty courses.
Has studied and uses alternative education methods including indigenous methods for more than 10 years and includes these in her courses. Offers mentoring during and after the course.
Available for design consultation or teaching.
