Before working here as the Restoration Specialist I worked with the California Conservation Corps on a number of projects, I learned a lot there. I also worked as a USFS Type II Fire Fighter. I’ve gotten to work with PPN for two great years. I’ve currently been working with sustainable ag, hydroponics, firewise principles, ecological succession, and environmental degradation associated with human impacts. At the PPN Environmental Department, I’m trying to get our Ag Department to be completely self-sustaining. I’ve also had the opportunity here to really hone in on some of my interests such as traditional gardening and aquaponic systems. I’ve especially enjoyed helping set up big time grounds and getting PPN firewise. I’m currently attending Mendocino College, working towards an Earth Science Degree and plan on transferring to Humboldt State.
