I created this blog as a place to collect and write about topics that interest me in the broad category of sustainability. I am specifically interested in restoring landscapes. 

I believe in the value of all three E’s of sustainability – ecology, equality, and economics – and I believe that as a person who wants to participate in changing the physical aspects of our world, I have a responsibility to understand these broader issues, in order to address my specific interests as well as possible. However, while I am interested in creating places where human beings can exist in balance with the rest of the world, my primary goal is to undo the damage that human action has caused to natural places, and to put the needs of those lands above the desire of human beings to use them, and so “ecology” is the part of the triangle that I am most focused on.
