Just wanted to say "Hi" to everyone and introduce myself! My name is David. I am a professional landscaper that specializes in creative, edible, and ecological landscape design. I have my masters degree in landscape architecture. I studied in New York, Florida, and Massachusetts. Ideally i think peoples home landscapes (big or small) should provide food, inspiration, or at the very least leisure. I spent allot of time on my education, and I am now getting my business started. The 2013 growing season was my first year in operation. Before starting my business, Backyard Orchards[url=http://backyard-orchards.com/]Backyard Orchards, designed habitat revitalization plans for a local WATERKEEPER Alliance chapter and a private landscape architecture firm.

My coming to the Permies Forum is (in general) three fold:

1. To find different ways to make business more efficient, creative, and ecological.
2. My dream is to have a forest farm/ permaculture farm out here in the Buffalo, NY area. I am a newlywed and my wife and I are looking to buy our first house.
3. To share the little that I know and learn with my personal blog.

Thank you for such a great site!

Sincerely,

David Scott Myers

Hello David,

Welcome to Permies, I have family in Buffalo, NY. I really enjoy seeing the difference between the desert (where I live) and the forest (Buffalo).

Brett,

Thanks for the phone call! It was nice talking to you!!

Ken,

I have thought of doing a course, I was scheduled to take Ben Falk's class up in VT at Whole Systems Design, but it fell through. I plan on taking the Finger Lakes Permaculture Course this summer down in Ithaca.
