About your host
I'm an environmental scientist and entomologist by training and have done quite a bit of work in the field, including reclaiming mine sites, restoring forest ecosystems, monitoring stream water quality with aquatic insects, and a host of other fun projects outdoors. I founded HomesteadBrooklyn.com to help people become more attuned to nature in the city and do monthly gardening workshops.
