    I am initially going to focus on lawn replacement and drought resistant plants. As long as you're within driving distance I will come to your home and consult with you on how to convert your lawn from grass to drought resistant plant life. It won't be a sales pitch ;)

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read why I want your money. I assure you it's not for craft beer and car parts, it's to make me a better and more useful human than I am now. I'm a User Interface Mobile Web Graphic Photographer working in San Diego for a 2 lettered global technology company that focuses on tech and printing. ;) 17 years in this career and I'm over it. I'm making little difference to improve our world and the days are flying by. I want to take this permaculture design course to start me on a career path that is fulfilling, fun and benefits my friends and family long after the money is spent.

The program I am interested in taking is a Permaculture Design Course by San Diego Sustainable Living Institute. It starts September 19th and is 6 weeks long and 2 full days per week. 

In light of the drought in California the sustainability of our water usage is impossible. With this education and continuing research and development I intend to establish a lawn replacement company in San Diego County. One that replaces water needing grass and plants with beautiful succulents and cacti. To me it currently feels like a presumptive goal as I am just starting my journey, but it is what has spurred me to take a first step. I hope you can help contribute to my education in permaculture design. Anything is super appreciated. Thanks for reading!
