The GreenmanIn 1989, I came to California from Cordoba, Argentina. I had what you might call a “normal” childhood. Video games, skateboarding and way too much TV. The catalyst to align my life in a more sustainable way came around 2006 from watching Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth.’ I remember that night vividly. After a Sunday yoga class I found out they were showing this film and decided to stay. Boy, did it awaken my awareness. I left expecting the sky to fall before I even made it home.

Not too long after that I started gardening and learning about permaculture,natural building, greywater and related subjects. This blog is the chronicle of my path to help create a more sustainable world, one day at a time.
