My name is Elisabeth de Jong and I studied Environmental Science at Cal Poly Humboldt with a focus on Energy and Climate.

Interests in Appropriate Technology[edit | edit source]

  • I am excited to apply my education to the actual construction of materials that will improve our environment.
  • I am interested in clean energy, alternative sourcing, natural building, gardening techniques, composting and much more.
  • I believe that appropriate technology is the key to achieving a healthier world.

Experience in Appropriate Technology[edit | edit source]

  • My experiences with Appropriate Technology have been rewarding and I hope to continue working on projects in the future.
  • I had the opportunity to work with two other HSU students in designing and creating the CCAT Beach Grass Clay Slip Wall.
  • I also worked in the Dominican Republic with the Practivistas_Dominicana with several Dominican students while learning Spanish and working on a new appropriate project.
  • I was involved in the creation of a "Botica Popular" in Las Malvinas, Dominican Republic called Las Malvinas botica popular fiber-crete 2013

Welcome[edit source]

Hi Elizabeth, hope you're having a great program.

I moved your user page back to User:Elisabeth.dejong so it matches your account name - otherwise it'll be confusing to go to User:Elisabeth.deJong and find there's no contributions link or email-this-user link, because it's not actually the account. Sorry about that. It's possible to change an account name, but you'll need to ask Lonny, if he's got time (or once we've got a tech volunteer to help with such things).

Thanks for the great work. --Chriswaterguy 17:50, 3 July 2013 (PDT)

Welcome to the Appropedia wiki! If you need a general wiki-tutorial, see the main help page (or the more in-depth one on WikiEducator).

You may want to upload a photo or information about yourself to your userpage (which is at User:Elisabeth.dejong).

If you have a particular interest or project in mind, go ahead and start it! If you have questions or suggestions, the best place to leave them is at our community discussion page, which we call the Village pump - you should get a fast response. Or, feel free to leave me a note on my talk page if you have further questions, need help finding your way around, have a cool idea for a project, or just want to chat. If you just want to know how things work here, check out Appropedia:Policies and Appropedia:FAQ. We're a relaxed and friendly bunch though, and you can also just pick things up as you go.
