Annamaria completed her Permaculture Design Certification in Fall 2011. Upon completion of the course she assisted in the redesign of the gardens at Inspiration Kitchens (2011-2012), the public landscaping along East Garfield Park’s business corridor at Lake and Kedzie, the Martin Luther King Peace Path in North Lawndale, and was instrumental in bringing the Ten Thousand Ripples Peace Project to various North Lawndale sites. She is also a Traditional Chinese Feng Shui consultant. Her obvious talent and true passion to help communities in and around Chicago to be more environmental conscience is something to be admired. Her knowledge is shaping the minds of others who too want to live more green!
