My background is in exercise and nutrition as a personal trainer and registered dietitian for 20 years. With a love for travel I took a year off to travel abroad to study and enjoy different cultures perspective on health and happiness. From this journey I discovered Permaculture.
I first heard of Permaculture in Byron Bay, AU. For me, Permaculture seemed to be the missing link in the nutrition counseling I'd been doing for years. So I made a commitment to visit a permaculture site in every country we traveled over the following six months, including, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines. I was hooked, so I searched fora certification course and found the ultimate experience. A course being taught by Bill Mollison and Geoff Lawton.
Since that life changing expedition, I've been gaining knowledge and experience across the US, and eventually settled into the area I felt was most needed, Urban Permaculture. I've been in LA for 2 years now and am very proud to be a part of an incredible intentional community we call UP House, for Urban Permaculture. We have enough land for a city property to delve into many of the permaculture related disciplines and are very integrated with our community and synergistic organizations and businesses around us. We are currently setting up workshops and educational programming, while offering health and sustainability events on a monthly basis. We'll have a website up soon, but for now, you can reach us through our facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/urbanpermaculturehouse or my personal email [email protected]
