As I reflect on 2014 and the first year of our work as Resilience Planning & Design a large smile forms on my face. The work we are doing is what we are most passionate about and it enables us to work with inspiring clients and colleagues. Some highlights from 2014 include five Permaculture design courses, a Teacher Training course, work on a land use plan for the City of Dover, subdivision designs that go beyond municipal requirements to create new vibrant ecosystems, efforts to reduce road salt use in New Hampshire, a plan for increasing solar pv systems on homes in the Northeast, and countless other inspiring efforts and experiences.
As 2015 unfolds it appears that exciting new experiences are upon us again. We are currently talking to several potential clients about Master Planning work, policy audits, design work, and new courses. If you are aware of a project that you think we could contribute to in a meaningful way please let us know. We really want to work with clients and communities that are ready to transition to more resilient and sustainable futures. Groups and Boards that are excited to innovate, and projects that will result in meaningful change for our communities, watersheds, and bioregions are what excite us most!
