I am a teacher, gardening enthusiast, tinkerer, hobbyist, and home improvement addict. I am a pragmatist and find civic engagement vital to the health of a community. Though I'm a bit of a perfectionist myself, I take risks, try new things, learn from my failures, and encourage others to do the same.
My current big endeavor is transforming my property into a model of self-sustenance. I am also designing a non-profit business called "Higher Ground" that creates shared gardens in communities, enables local farmer's markets, and teaches homeowners to farm their own properties. I plan on using Simbi to inform the organization of this business and get the community behind this movement.
