Profile Information

About Me:
I am a green building consultant & permaculture designer based in Arizona & Dominica, West Indies. My company, Green Element Design Group, LLC, is a Green consulting firm featuring Green architects, designers, permaculturalists, landscapers and people from other green disciplines and green products all coming together to help people go green.

I am available to give power point presentations to groups and individuals to teach them easy ways to go green, and hope to spread the word until this world is no longer in danger of destroying itself. I also hope to bring to this forum information that will be useful and informative, enabling us all to reach a higher level. We are Your Green Edge!

I also teach Community Building and Alternative Money for the Guild's PDC, serve on the Technical Review Committee for the AZUSGBC, the Gilbert Environmental Task Force, and serve as the committee chair for the Pinal Green Committee, where we are setting the standards for Pinal County to go green. I am a member of the AZ Chapter of the USGBC, the Phoenix Green Chamber of Commerce, the AZ Small Business Association, and the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association, and I am Executive Producer (as part of Perma Cultural Productions) of Green and Easy TV.

All this because I decided to take the Fall Permaculture Design Course in 2007! Woo Hoo!

Keep the pressure on!

We, the undersigned, demand that the USDA refuse any deregulation, of Monsanto’s genetically engineered Roundup Ready alfalfa. The Supreme Court acknowledged that the economic risks from genetic contamination, as well as the risk to the environment of gene flow, are real harms. The USDA has a responsibility to protect farmers and consumers and should refuse any requests for deregulation.

A message from Your Local AZFB: Advocates needed!

Fellow Agriculture Advocates …

We just got a post on "Chat with a Farmer." Yes, I'm excited (I know the simple things in life make me joyful). Our query is about composting. This Arizonan is wanting to learn from an agriculturalist about composting and they need to hear from you!

If you have great insights for this person, please register(if you have not already) and respond to the query.

Remember, Arizona Farm Bureau is focused on providing another tool for… Continue

The Bots Are Here Be Aware! It is TOO LATE TO STOP THEM!

Bots are software algorithms or formulas that are specifically designed to perform repetitive patterns, actions or duties. We are using them (or they are using us) daily, without even knowing it. We need to be aware of them, and participate in the process of evaluating them. Here is a good presentation on the subject courtesy of the Global Guerrilla:

The Daemon Bot

It is… Continue

Listen to my new show on KMEC FM 105.1 @

Hi all,

As some of you may already know, I am relocating to northern California to start a new life. Part of that "transition" will be a new radio program in downtown Ukiah (soon to be a Transition Town) at the Mendocino Environmental Center.

It has long been my dream to host a show at a radio station in the downtown of a small American town, ala the show "Northern Exposure", and that has now become a reality. This show will be a forum for the locals to use to discuss… Continue

I just saw your note. I think Peter Shifman is a great person and
I always appreciated his kind assistance. The last time I spoke
with him was when he purchased acreage in Domenica.
I gather that is going well. Send me an e mail if you are still in town

Hi Terri, That is too funny as I just looked at all your wonderful pictures this morning and thought to myself what a great oasis in the desert. What kind of chickens do you recommend? I wrote up what I have right now to Rachel. What do you have in stock? I'm new to this but am loving it! Susan

Terri, Has been awhile since we crossed paths. Not since the Green Expo at the Stadium I think! I've been in overwhelmed mode for some time, but things are beginning to loosen up time-wise. Looks like you've got a lot goin' on too!
Peace to you and yours,
