Soil is the place where we remember to care for our environment. Practicing care for our natural world can take shape in many forms. In these pages I will, in time, add more resources surrounding “sustainability,” permaculture, conservation, environmental educational and more.

It’s important to begin at home with our own understanding of what a sustainable world looks like. It’s not going to be easy. Many of us have VERY ingrained and unconscious consumer mentalities that make many of our daily interactions NOT in line with a healthy world (I am SO included in this). These pages are full of ideas on how to begin grappling with a more holistic approach to living and working with the natural world, but you may have better ideas from your own education and experience. Please share if you would like! I am always looking to expand on resources here for our community, and would love to share your work here.

If we want to see change, it means working with our communities, changing policy, finding alternatives to the norms, and practicing skills to help take care of our neighbors and create powerful community and healing in the process. It is a PROCESS. We are not going to do this overnight.

Our urban environments could be so much more, aligned with holistic, sustainable design, welcoming of greater community, supporting resources to care for all people. Our spaces could reflect greater creativity, inspiration, and beauty. Buildings and additions could be built to really last, to be regenerative, restorative and welcoming.

Don’t settle for what you see around you now.  Dream with the creators, doers, thinkers, builders, weavers. A new day is coming.
