Hi Everyone,

I would love to know if there are any events in the North NJ area? I welcome collaborating and also sharing ideas. My background is Educational Technology and Filmmaking.

Have a great day,

Hello everyone! I'm new to this group and look forward to cultivating a future exchange of ideas with you all. I'm a practicing Landscape Architect (I design camps and community parks, gardens) and a university lecturer.

As a way of introducing myself, I thought I'd share a link to a current project - Monarch Butterfly Waystation . We're working with local neighbors to establish a community outdoor classroom in this neighborhood. I welcome your thoughts, ideas and suggestions and look forward to connecting with you in the future!
