My dream is to inspire urban dwellers, particularly those in less affluent neighbourhoods, to reduce their water, power and gas/petrol use and to grow as much food as possible. I believe more and more people, particularly the young, worry about the environment. They often want to go "green" but have little idea how to do so, or what they can afford to do. I have formed a relationship with an investor and earlier this year bought a house in LA's Jefferson/Arlington area. Using a vernacular style, ubiquitous products, recycled furniture/appliances and as many "green" features as my budget allowed, I extensively remodelled the house and landscaped the garden. The building was finished in December, 2013, and my hope is that it will help to "seed" the neighbourhood.
