Hi permies, it's been a while!

I wanted to reach out to you about a really exciting, important project I have been working on. I love all of your guys work on this platform to restore ecosystems and water, and so I wanted to share this with you all because I think it's something you may be interested in. Ten years ago, it was just a dream of mine to build ponds and help regenerate landscapes as my profession, and I have made that happen...but there's only so much a single work crew can do.

My dream for the next few years is to start an online learning and training platform that can teach thousands of professionals how to restore water to landscapes, and help their communities put water restoration into practice.

This platform, I believe, has a ton of potential to decentralize water restoration, but we are still in the beginning building stages, so please give us any feedback about what you might want in a platform like this.

Please visit our  Water Stories Website to see more details and sign up for the newsletter there for updates when we have them.

We are going to be launching a Q&A with myself soon, so if you sign up for the newsletter you will get updates about that too.

Here is a video for the project:




Again,  Water Stories Website



With Gratitude,

Zach Weiss

Would this platform be good for people who manage waste water and drinking water?

Hi there!
I know this thread is from a month ago, but I followed the link in the daily-ish email.
I know this project is in the beginning stages, but I have a suggestion for you;
Try reaching out to Kerry Schwartz. She's not on permies, but she's a retired geology professor from the University of Arizona, and founder of Arizona's project wet.
She created a program to teach kids, and to teach teachers how to teach kids, about water conservation and the importance of caring for and restoring the water cycle. She may be able to help. I think she's officially retired from running the program, but she'll be able to help, or point you guys in the right direction for resources or something along those lines. I think would excited about this you guys are working on. She's also my godmother. Let me know if you think it's a good idea, I can let her know if you want to reach out, maybe set up a time for y'all to talk if that would be helpful

Have a nice day!
-AnnaLea

Hi AnnaLea, just seeing you comment now.  I would love to be put in touch with Kerry.  I just looked into Project WET, and it seems like a great initiative.  It could also be a great way to start developing our kids program, which is something we are planning on in the future.  

Could you message me her contact details?  Or I will message you mine and maybe you can connect us?  I can also reach out to Project WET directly, but I find a personal connection usually helps when possible.
