I am a fourth generation Oklahoman. All of my great grandparents came here before statehood, two of them drew land in the last land lottery in the state down in Tillman County. I have the wagon bows from the wagon that brought the Waldrops from Sherman, Texas to Oklahoma’s “Big Pasture” in 1903, on the wall of my living room. All of them were farmers, as were my grandparents and parents.
I wear three hats in my life: director of music at Epiphany Church, president of the Oklahoma Food Cooperative, and founder of the Oscar Romero Catholic Worker House.
I also hold a certificate in permaculture design from Barking Frogs Permaculture in Florida. From 2008 – 20011, I have been a discussion leader in Barking Frogs Permaculture’s Online Permaculture Design course. In 2014, the Permaculture Institute of the US awarded me Permaculture Diplomas in Education, Community Service, Research, Media, and Finance.
I am presently offering my ebook, iPermie! How to permaculture your urban lifestyle. This is a good-life design guide for boomers, millenials, and generation X. It is 399,000 words organized into 14 sections and 248 chapters on the subject of sustainable living in the city. And it also works in rural areas. You can get it delivered by email as a PDF or as a PDF delivered on a CD.
