Thanks. Much of my work at MORPC is in ag and local foods (I led the effort last year that published the Central Ohio Local Food Assessment and Plan). But this current project is different -- it encourages denser development in cities and towns as a way to revitalize them and preserve farmland and open space. But I wanted to show that dense neighborhoods are still consistent with gardens. I'd like to use the picture labeled "Kathleen's front yard." It's such a nice picture that shows the front garden and the streetscape of homes in the background.
Hi Tom Thanks! I hope that I can make it to some of the events. I am taking a permaculture cert. class in Pittsburgh this winter and would like to get more involved with permaculture projects in Cleveland!
The one vertical garden I have planted is very green now... so if you'd still like to come see it, I can be available Thursday/Friday this week, or we can arrange for next week some time. :o)
I switched my computer over to windows 7 and lost all my emails in the process, which also means that I lost the email with everyone's email address in it-- I hope this was an okay way to get you.
You can email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or call me 216-789-6410 when you'd like and we can set something up. And feel free to bring your granddaughter to see the chickens (that day or another) too! :o)
Hi Tom, Thanks for all. For whatever reason I can't seem to find the sign-up sheet you mentioned. I would like to go, and car-pool on Saturday, but maybe am not so game if the weather's bad. I will sign up tho, if you can help with the 'where'.
A big maybe. Two weeks ago I went to the Penn. Assoc. for Sust. Agr. meeting to hear Mike Reynolds of Earthship fame (see his outstanding website earthship.net ). While there I took in a workshop by Dave Jacke, who wrote Edible Forest Gardens. Very high powered. I have the multi page handout from the workshop, chock full of valuable info. I have not figured out how to post it on this website. Any ideas? I can email it to you as a pdf, also, if you want it, but I don't have your email address.
Hi, Tom. I caught the flu so am not going to SF. Here is the video that drew me to permaculture. I could not figure out how to post it on the site. Maybe you will enjoy watching it and figuring out what to do with it. http://www.lostvalley.org/Valley-TV-and-Videos
Hey Tom - I'm really glad that you're in the course, I think you bring an important dynamic and energy. I look forward to acquainting myself more with your projects and learning more about your background in PR and journalism (or was it marketing?)
