What brings me to this community is that I work in my community for climate and economic action. I started a low-profit limited liability company to continue my work as a "permaculture developer" which is a planning and development approach to applied permaculture and design thinking. I am an activist that is committed to social innovation and I have a fierce ecological imagination. I have been writing and practicing "regenerative leadership" the best I can since 2007. Being an ancestor that did something is a deep edge and I work on my own healing there, as part of our collective healing. This is the scale where my leverage is the greatest and my capacity as a facilitator expands. I have navigated the local governance structure and funding opportunities, (not always has my work been funded) to offer a program that started a week ago, as 207permaculture. The day that I signed a contract with the State of Maine to provide services to three municipalities and one school district, for one year, to activate a network that will learn together and act together on climate and economic projects in the region, I saw The Schumacher Institute talk by Kate Rawworth in my email box.
After the talk, joined my action co-lab would be well served to use these tools. The intergeneration and interdisciplinary group of leaders that gather will be approaching their town leadership and the State's Climate Action Plan Program Director with a vision of a thriving rural bioregion, and request support for their action plans. It is my hope that they will spinning off several other social innovations, educational pathways and businesses as well.
I have a BA in Sociology from the University of Southern Maine, a MA in Applied Behavioral Science from the Leadership Institute of Seattle at Bastyr University, Advanced Permaculture Design Certifications, Soil Food Web Lab Certification. I am a Mom, a friend, a sister, a partner, unwed, a home cook, a future ancestor, a grant writer, a group facilitator, an educator and an serial entrepreneur. My pronouns are she and her.
