Nearly two years ago he moved to NYC, after homesteading off the grid for 8 years in rural W.V., and hit the ground running teaching numerous classes, speaking on various panels, designing edible gardens, consulting urban and rural clients and volunteering in his local community garden. He is currently working on creating ecological training centers in North America and abroad and inspiring the next wave of students in his 4th full Permaculture Design Certification in NYC.
