-Currently waiting for approval from the employment ministry for my second internship with Dodo’s urban farming center in Pasila, Helsinki. If all works out, it’ll be 30 hrs / week for two 3 month periods this year.
-Our book about the rooftop garden at Kaapelitehdas (the Cable Factory) for Slow Food Helsinki is moving well. I’m almost finished with the portion of the book that I am mostly responsible for and the rest is coming together swimmingly. Hopefully that’ll be finished in a couple of months so we can move on to the next.
-I have some workshops and talks lining up with Slow Food Helsinki. Pretty exciting!
-I’m planning on teaching an Introduction to Permaculture Course this spring with another permaculturalist in Helsinki. Held in English, it’ll offer another choice for those interested in permaculture in the capital region. Helsinki is home to the largest number of immigrants in Finland and is internationally oriented from business, to government, and NGOs. Offering courses and workshops in English can only strengthen the growth of permaculture and regenerative systems thinking in Finland.
