Hi everyone,

Elizabeth Ü here; thanks for having me aboard!

I'm a coach and business development consultant who specializes in food, finance, and maximizing delight I live in Bolinas, CA, on the coastal edge of the San Francisco Bay Area.

My connection to permaculture is through the lens of finance: how can people successfully raise the money they need, from the ecosystem of sources, including their communities, governments, institutions (foundations, banks and other commercial lenders, etc), and more... using the tools and techniques that are most appropriate for their values and goals... to plan for, launch, maintain, or grow their projects? Such juicy questions, and the answers depend on so many factors.

I look forward to answering some of your questions on these juicy topics next week during a special Permies.com Q&A session, along with Eric Toensmeier and Rafter Sass Ferguson, with whom I'll be teaching a Regenerative Farm Enterprise Planning Course in Virginia, October 18-23 in VA. Hope to see you there!
