Interview with Jill Giegerich, founder of Transition Joshua Tree

Transition Joshua Tree has gone from strength to strength in the last three years, initiated by Jill Giegerich and now involved many members of the community. Jill, another ex-Los Angelena and artist is now putting all here creative and problem solving skills into hi-desert permaculture. Permaculture is at the heart of the Transition Movement. It is a sustainable land use design system that works with nature to ensure a healthy and abundant environment for many generations to come. It particularly offers solutions to desertification and dryland ecosystems. Like other Transition movements they envision, promote and facilitate the transition to a more resilient, sustainable way of life, organising the community to develop an Action Plan based in this case on the desert climate, away from fossil fuels. When I spoke to Jill she showed me around a new permaculture project she’s working on and told me what permaculture means to her.
