Who We Are
When I first came across the term permaculture, it perfectly connected my lifelong ideals for abundance, deep ecology, and community resilience.
I was a water resources engineer back when all these permaculture ideals tugged at my heart. I am blessed to be experienced in GIS mapping, drainage plans, erosion control, stormwater ponds, ditch designs, navigating regulations, and public presentations.
In 2011 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 professional 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. The timeline continues on that page.
