Kelda Miller is a permaculture gardener based in Western Washington. She grew up in cul-de-sac consumerist suburbia and has a passion for reaching out, destroying asphalt, and creating beauty in in some of the worst landscapes created by humans. She likes to bring hope, and a sense of global responsibility, to places that need it. She trained at the Bullock’s Permaculture Homestead, then mobilized the Seattle Permaculture Guild. She has co-taught permaculture courses in Tacoma, Vashon Island, and Bellingham (including an Earth Activist Training), as well as many smaller workshops. She uses gardening as a tool to revitalize villages and recently started selling her surplus permaculture-grown foods at a health food store on Sumner’s Main Street.
