I came to California from England in 1967, wanting to expand my horizons and become more involved in social change. I have always been involved in important social issues with like-minded people.
I was an engineer in Silicon Valley until I retired in 2003. I volunteer with Hooked on Nature and Children, Nature and You. I support the activities in a variety of ways, including media design.
I am also a long-time volunteer mediator, specializing in Parent/Teen and Victim/Offender mediation.
Welcome to the movement. I am thinking that somehow you are connected with Diane. If so, I am very excited to be working with Diane and Avery Cleary on bringing nature-based activities to the child care community in my state of Washington. By next spring, I expect we will have some exciting things to share with the other members of this site. Please wander around to see the amazing things that are happening in so many places, including your homeland. Join in, encourage others to join, and share what you are doing with others. I look forward to meeting you in person. John
