I am privileged to be invited to speak about my design process for designing the proposed new meadow at Cal Poly Pomona’s Biotrek.

I will be in amazing company: wHY Architecture designed the first LEED Museum, the Lyle Center sets the standard for science-based sustainable systems design;  and Dr. Bobich, my former professor for California Flora (Taxonomy), will speak about the carbon implications of Lawns versus Meadows.  Mike Brown, of Biotrek, one of the most knowledgeable and creative people in ethnobotany in the region, will speak about eating native and provide a native food tasting.  I’ll be contributing Acorn-Mesquite-Cornbread to the tasting.
