My self-summary
Can start up just about anything. To join in with these words and a few photos is good. You might enjoy meeting me and that's why I'm here!
What I’m doing with my life
Put in and help keep up gardens for folks including my own.
Spend a great deal of time spring, summer and fall foraging wild foods and mushrooms in fields and woods.
Cook really well and eat nearly everything from gardens or local farms, mostly vegetables, local pastured meats and sea foods especially seaweeds, mussels and oysters.
My goals and daily practices revolve around small and large scale sustainable urban agriculture projects and dwellings.
Springtime and summer make tree flower cordials and a sumac switchel. In August crawl into the densest bramble of thumb-sized blackberries ever. Down with the groundhogs and spiders. A week later there are buckets of elderberries.
Make and eat jars of lacto-fermented vegetables and other ferments.
Still relish outdoor cooking fires, pond plunges, laying back in hammocks waiting out northern lights or staying still listening to bird song, and scads of shimmering adventures in the minutiae and rollicking day trips to magic.
Cooking Burmese dishes, thinking about the practice of dowsing, imagining a small pontoon houseboat to live on the river or lake when staying in town, wanting deeper knowledge of plant lore, gathering wild food plants and cultivating them into a garden site.
Working up a city-wide participatory project at reclaiming habitats, creating no-mows, making bee belts and pollinator paths of perpetually flowering 3 season native plantings.
I’m really good at
Pretty much anything I put my person to but with practice. Some projects or skills come easier then others. I can write and speak about who I am, what moves me in the world, where I've been, where I'd like to go and what I'd like to do.
The first things people usually notice about me
I asked someone yesterday that I trust. The wonder and intent in my eyes, strength and clarity in gestures and a dancer's stature. Probably too that I often wear my heart on one of my sleeves.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There are too many already and too many more to come but I can share titles, topics and authors with anyone interested. Film is such a great medium to sit back and learn from or escape into.
Good food I can't say enough about. It makes all the difference and will shape and change how we grow and care for everything in the world.
Six things I could never do without
6? Those change as I get wiser and have richer experiences.
But qualities like perseverance surrounded by idiocy. Uniqueness surrounded by conformity. An ability to see differently and believe in those possibilities and work to put them into the world.
Homesteads, even in towns, encircled by gardens, berries and orchards, bees, chickens and maybe a couple of hogs. Good food, good water and foraging. Dreams of trips to places unknown and hiking from one hot spring to another in Japan.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how great it will be not to spend time pecking fingers in cyberspace and instead meet new people out in the world!
Yes, that but really considering the world and how to be in it with presence, humility, consideration and grace.
On a typical Friday night I am
Coming from foraging in the woods, going to a potluck dinner, a sunset swim. Sitting in a sunset meadow designing a transitional home on wheels! Summertime cooking, studying, going to bed early to read and chill but sometimes just restless for fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Most likely anything if asked...
You should message me if
none of the above is beyond your capacity to respond.
The two of us
