Aloha Friends & Family:
Epic progress and expansion growing now, thriving, designing many projects on Maui with support of the Maui Permaculture Network (MPN).
I began as a member of the Santa Barbara Permaculture Guild, and met them when they came to the California Institute of Earth Art & Architecture (CalEarth -- calearth.org).
I was standing on top of a dome, demonstrating how we build them, and someone introduced me to Permaculture. That was it. I have been learning, sharing, teaching, and instigating inspiration and action in a regenerative direction ever since: in Israel, Egypt, Topanga, Santa Barbara, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Scotland, and on Maui.
I founded the Maui Permaculture network in 2006, because I wanted a community to grow and learn and celebrate life with. All is well. 80 people showed up when they read my story: Mana Thriving in Haiku through Permaculture Design, April 2006. We now offer a range of seasonal workshops & farm tours and farm brunches, lunches & teas, weekly gatherings at the Upcountry Farmer's Market (UFM), and we are co-creating an MPN directory for all local Permaculture-related friends and farmers for local bartering and abundance exchanges!
I am now designing many large projects, and a few backyards, and 4 to 10-acre Permaculture Designs on Maui.
So happy to be connecting so many dots in 2012, after 22 years of envisioning just such bliss.
Mahalo for your peace.
Aloha, After 19 years of sharing Earth Art & Architecture workshops around the world with children's clay classes, including Permaculture Design, and adult classes in a slideshow, we built our first project on Maui -- a 300-foot curving sensuous garden
