Permaculturist, occasionally ravenous mulberry harvester
When I first came across the term permaculture, it perfectly connected my lifelong ideals for abundance, deep ecology, and community resilience.
Back then, I was occupied in a water resources engineering career path. I am blessed to be experienced in GIS mapping, drainage plans, erosion control, stormwater ponds, ditch designs, navigating regulations, and public presentations. Another outcome of this is I am a licensed professional engineer (P.Eng.). All this happened while permaculture ideals tugged at my heart.
In 2011, after ‘graduating’ from my engineering career, I completed my Permaculture Design Certificate at the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute.
In 2012, EDEN in SEASON was born. EDEN in SEASON represents the marriage of my 7 years as a water resources engineer with my passion for permaculture (ecological and community design), also known as ecological engineering. That year, I started my first edible forest plantings, established a school demonstration garden, and experienced working on a diversity of edible landscapes and landowners.
In 2014, the Garden of Eating is established as EDEN in SEASON’s demonstration farm.
