In and out of practice I enjoy actual Land-Scaping. Changing the scape and scope of the land to improve growth, water retention, and life/land quality. No-till hay, carpet and burlap permaculture gardens. Raised beds/berms for square-foot or sown food production. I grow few flowers except those with herbal/medicinal qualities. Food Not Lawns supporter. :) Expertise isn't what I have, rather an interest in nearly anything that has to do with real application to improve quality of life, with the lowest eco-footprint possible. Also interested in teaching others. Have been experimenting with geodesics for a while now.. Was raised with several Native American influences, crafting aficionados, and "new-age" (more appropriately: "throwback") utopian idealists. Passive solar, sustainable tech, native crafting, medicine making and wild foraging are my passions. Want to build earthships and rope-tent tree villages in the near future. I recently moved onto a Christmas Tree Grasonville in Washington, which functions as a sort of commune without intention. Have been conferring with the owner of the 140 acre (mostly forested) property, who wants help to make it into a functional ecovillage in the next couple years. For now keeping chickens and may start rabbits and bees in the spring. Am improving significantly the garden/farm space for next season.
