Why are you interested in joining the guild? (If you are outside the Knoxville region, why are you interested in joing the guild?)
To interact with others who are interested in Permanent Agriculture and sustainable/alternative building practices.
What skills or experiences do you have that can be shared?
I have been a furniture maker for the past 10 years. I moved to Knoxville in August 2008 and lived in Japan for the preceding 4 years. In Japan, I worked at an International Montessori School where my interests in childhood education evolved. I now work for the Montessori Middle School in Louisville,TN, where the growing and selling of organic produce is one of many "occupations" offered to students.
