Jesse is an artist and writer inspired by the natural world of Vermont. She is also an herbalist and last year was certified in Permaculture Design. For the past two years she has not had a home of her own but instead has been employed by going house to house, caring for people’s gardens, plants and pets. In that time she has written a book, a manuscript of poems and a children’s story.
Jesse has dreamed of building an earth friendly home for years. She sees using her homestead as a small permaculture herb farm with fruit trees and creating an outdoor classroom for art and writing as well. She looks forward to joining the strawbale class, learning skills, working with a team and getting closer to the reality of building a place she can call home. This will also give her family, children and grandchildren a place to visit.
She also looks forward to bringing her acquired knowledge and skills into her community to assist others in creating strawbale and permaculture dwellings. Jesse will be joining us in one of our Oregon classes.
