In the hour and a half that Kenton and I met, we enjoyed a vibrant conversation and learned about one another. He shared some information with me about the work he does teaching permaculture and about tiny homes. I shared about the work I do teaching communication skills and leading play-based workshops. We will be in contact again in the future.
