“Eric McCool is an author and permaculturist whose studies and work for the last six years have been focused on localization, community organizing, and sustenance gardening. Earlier academic studies he conducted at Boston and Baylor University, with emphasis on philosophy, history, and English.
Rather than completing his degree, Eric went off to travel and vagabond about, living on the streets, camping on the outskirts of civilization, working service and labor jobs for short stints to raise cash in between adventures. Discovery of permaculture and the new paradigm culture led him to Oregon, where he took a permaculture certification course and got to know some key people in the community of the Rogue and Umpqua Valleys. He went on to spend five years working on localization and community building projects in the small town of Glendale, and the focus of his studies center around local community and what people can do from where they are.
In the course of this work, Eric began to take note of matters of critical concern to the planet and society, developing an interest for activism and alternative media. Inspired by the many independent journalists who have been expanding the quality and reach of alt media, he began to develop ideas for content and programming that would bridge the worlds of permaculture and the alternative media.
Eric now resides in Southern Oregon with his wife and three daughters, growing gardens and exploring the beautiful natural places of the Northwest.”
