DESCRIPTION

Join Landmark and Transition Town Port Washington for a moderated discussion led by Hildur Palsdottir. Then join the conversation for an audience Q&A.


Our panelists:
Marisa DeDominicis
is the Executive Director and co-founder of Earth Matter NY Inc. where the mission is to reduce waste misdirected into the garbage stream by encouraging neighbor participation and leadership in composting. Marisa oversees the intensive on-farm composting training program that focuses on growing soil, education of volunteers and visitors, sale of herbs to island vendors, and donations of our fresh produce and eggs, to a local soup kitchen. https://earthmatter.org/

Wes Gillingham runs Wild Roots Farm, a 100-acre permaculture farm with his family. As Catskills Mountainkeeper's co-founder and Associate Director, Wes helps develop the strategic thrust of our programs and coordinates collaborative efforts working with regional, state, and national partners on Extreme Energy Extraction and fossil fuel infrastructure fights. From 1996 to 2007 Wes and his wife ran a 150-member Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) vegetable operation and during that time he also served on the Board of Directors for the Northeast Organic Farming Association of NY. Prior to farming, Wes served as an Acting Director of Field Programs for the National Audubon Society Expedition Institute, teaching graduate and undergraduate environmental education throughout North America and also worked as a Park Ranger for the National Park Service. Although graduating from the University of Maine his real education comes from his extensive experiences in rural and wilderness America. Growing up learning about the interaction of humans and natural world and leading educational trips throughout the U.S give him a real-world grounding that few people in today's society have. https://www.growwildroots.com/our-story

Daniel Firth Griffith is an emergent conservationist, author, and regenerative farmer at Timshel Wildland, a 400-acre emergent and process-led landscape and farm in Central Virginia that supplies resilient wildlife habitat and regenerative wild foods to their community. Daniel is the co-founder, with his wife, of the Robinia Institute, a Savory Institute Hub that works to advocate, demonstrate, and educate the supreme abundance of holistic and emergent systems. He is the Community Director of the Common Wealth Network, Savory Institute Accredited Professional, and the author of a best-selling book on Regenerative Agriculture, Wild Like Flowers: The Restoration of Relationship Through Regeneration. Most importantly, Daniel is an unworthy father to Elowyn, Tecumseh, and Sequoia, and an undeserving husband to the most wonderful wife this world has to offer. http://wildtimshel.com/
