In this episode, Naomi explains the path her career took when a career in dance was set aside for a chance to work in arboriculture.  She explains:-Growing up in Bronx NY and studying dance and music throughout my formative years, I would never have imagined the professional life realized. I studied Botany, Horticulture, Landscape Design, but nothing fit until my first hike in the Catskills (NY) Forever Wild forest. My tree journey led me to the developing world of Urban Forestry studies and a relationship with Federal and State Urban Foresters, enabling me to    • co-author the Federal ReLeaf U&CF program for NY State; implement /chair the program in NYC;   • author Recommendations for an Urban Forest Management Plan;   • coordinate international and local educational conferences, seminars and workshops for       professionals and concerned citizens;   • develop/ initiate informed stewardship/ citizen science opportunities for concerned NY       residents, e.g. the Asian Longhorned Beetle NYC Public Outreach program (Federally-funded). I became a Certified Arborist in 1996, working as a Consulting Arborist, specializing in reviewing/ editing/ authoring Tree/ Landscape Preservation/ Protection specifications for large public infrastructure projects, developing a “Building WITH Trees” approach to design and build. I co-organized and chaired NYC Root Zone, a 501-c-3, authoring publications and providing informal educational opportunities for landscape professionals. I am now semi-retired, living in Luzern Switzerland and working to enhance and advance European Urban Forestry through    • contributions to COST projects;   • the Swiss federally funded Climate Change Adaptation project;   • implementation of i-Tree as an i-Tree team affiliate member;   • European Forum on Urban Forestry steering committee membership.

Barn Club is an inspiring tale of craft, nature, landscape and community. When life-long craftsman Robert Somerville moved to Hertfordshire from Devon, he discovered an unexpected landscape rich with wildlife and particularly elm trees. Nestled within London’s commuter belt, the wooded rolling hills inspired Robert, a lifelong woodworker, to revive the ancient tradition of hand-raising barns. Barn Club follows the building of Carley Barn, over the course of one year. Volunteers from all walks of life joined Robert’s barn club, inspired to learn this ancient skill of building by hand, at its own quiet pace and in the company of others.
