Organic Farming Educator and Permaculture Designer
More about ERay: "Master of his Abundant Green Minions, Tomato Whisperer, Forest Listener and Other Stuff, too!"
I have been involved in agriculture my entire life. I grew up on a farm where I first learned to love everything green and then went on to undergraduate study in agriculture to fill in some of the science behind the plants I love. After college, I shared family and community food gardening with families in Ecuador as part of my time in the Peace Corps. Since then I have had my own garden in addition to volunteering with an elementary school garden program in the states for a few years.
After years of dreaming about it, I finally left my position as a high school teacher and went to Southern France to WWOOF for a summer where I worked with several different small scale organic farmers to grow beautiful produce in a beautiful country.
Since then I have become a serious student of Permaculture and completed my Permaculture Design Certificate course in Spring '13. I am a lifelong student and teacher of how we can improve our lives and our planet with agriculture.
I enjoy sharing what I have learned and I my passion for teaching makes my classes fun and informative.
