My cousin somewhat recently had a tragic loss.  She needs to be treat with a lot of respect, given the circumstance, but there is an opportunity for some true progress here: she's just posted that she's looking for recommendations for a landscaper, and I would love to find a permaculture landscaper for her.

I don't want anyone pushing permaculture on her, I want sensitivity to her wishes.  At the same time, I know she cares about the world and there's a learning opportunity for someone who can create edible landscaping rather than vapid, and work with her in a life-giving way.  We're really not in contact much, so you'd need to ask her some questions about her desires for her land and listen, listen, listen.  If anyone's up for this I'd like to have a brief conversation with you first before passing on your info to her.  Please send me a purple moosage. Please pass this on to people who do good work or post recommendations I can follow up on here.  

Thanks.

Ah, such a key phrase right there! For any kind of designer working with a client, IMHO.

So immensely kind and thoughtful of you to be looking at this for her, Joshua.
