Nicholas is the lead educator for the School of Permaculture, where he leads the education programs and directs operations at both the farm and suburban demonstration sites for the school. Since 2012, Nicholas and his team have worked on a large and varied number of permaculture projects from farms and ranches to suburban homesteads and public parks, to apartment complexes and college campuses. He has received his permaculture education and training, in person, from the co-originator of permaculture Bill Mollison in Melbourne, Australia. He also interned with world renown permaculturist Geoff Lawton at Zaytuna Farm and attended the Earthship Academy for natural and recycled building construction, under the tutelage of Michael Reynolds in Taos, New Mexico. Aside from permaculture, and ecologic-related activities, Nicholas is a devoted follower of Jesus Christ, a husband, and a father. He is also a nidan and instructor at the Flowing Circle Aikido Center, plus a major proponent of peace. He believes that through the application of permaculture, people can find a more meaningful and purposeful existence.

Herb and Edible Flower Teacher
Tina is a Paramedical Aesthetic Practitioner of 21 years and her love of teaching began in her mid twenties as a national educator for Med-Surge-Advances, The National Procedures Institute and Empire Medical, teaching physicians and their staff on cosmetic chemistry and laser physics. Fast forward 15 years and Tina now has a passion for teaching children (including her own), not only all things science but manners and social etiquette as well.
Tina holds traditional core values, morals and ethics close to her heart and hopes to teach this to generations to come.
She looks forward to spending time with her son, husband, dogs and cat. She loves to travel, read, teach, SCUBA dive, fish, formulate, volunteer at animal shelters, play board games, try different International cuisines (the weird stuff), spend time with family and friends and go to church.
