Daniela completed her first Permaculture Design Course (PDC) in 2017. The experience seeded profound and rapid changes in her life. By the end of that year she and her husband had retrofitted a garden shed into a tiny home and currently enjoy the simple life with their small community. She is passionate about soil stewardship, growing good food and medicine, and resilient communities as we shift the paradigm into a more abundant future for all. In 2018 she began to work for the Boulder PDC and garden for Alpine Botanicals’ biodynamic garden in Boulder. She has completed a biodynamics intensive with Sustainable Settings and is continuously exploring, learning, and experimenting with new techniques to co-create with her community and the Mother Earth. Daniela also enjoys teaching yoga and interweaves her practice with Permaculture, helping people design balanced and purposeful lives.

Grant: Grant has been getting into the buzz of bees since the spring of 2013 when he took his first beekeeping class. Since then, he's been keeping hives on the Farmette and encouraging others in the community to fall in love with these hard-working honey makers. When he isn't working the flower fields you can find him watching the bees fly home to the hive after a long days work
