I'm Sara, working on a permaculture project in southeast Louisiana. I am formally studying natural resource management, and informally studying local ecology, edible wild plants, and the intentional cultivation of both domesticated and wild plants. I might be a weed gardener-- usually I'm more amazed at the natural gardens that spring up than those that I've carefully crafted. I hope to put my observations of these natural gardens to use in planning ecologically sound "survival gardens" for folks who have less time to wander the fields in search of inspiration. As such, my academic career is positioned to ultimately lead me to the field of landscape architecture. In the meantime, I am just finishing up my last year as an undergrad, raising an energetic toddler, and gradually extracting myself from modern western culture.

I am aso the author of The Wild Homestead Blog.
