I want to first acknowledge that I am a new and young person in the worldwide permaculture movement. Yet I’ve been handed an opportunity of a lifetime to help bring permaculture to countless individuals who might not have heard about it otherwise. This is such an honor, and I know that this opportunity is due to everyone who has been practicing and educating about permaculture since the 1970s. I believe that we’ve collectively hit a critical mass and now the tides are turning to bring permaculture to the mainstream. This is not at all because of me – I am only a small part of something much greater.
