About Me[edit | edit source]

Name: Toby Haskett

I am a senior at Humboldt State University. I enjoy spending time in the outdoors hiking, sailing, gardening, backpacking, cycling, and observing/relaxing. I was born and raised in Humboldt County, a place that inspires me to pursue a lifestyle that affects positive change in matters of environmental conservation and social justice.

Interests in Technology and the Environment[edit | edit source]

  • I am interested in how technological advances affect human interactions with land and one another.
  • I am intrigued by the methodologies used to measure how human actions affect the environment positively or negatively (i.e. carbon footprint analysis).
  • I like to study how "sustainable" communities decide what is sustainable, and whether a greater environmental consciousness has the potential to create a greater sense of community.

Experience in Technology and/or the Environment[edit | edit source]

  • I lived in an ecovillage in Northern New Zealand where I worked as an intern helping to install simple waste water treatment systems and intentional wetlands.
  • I was a co-director at the Humboldt State University Campus Center for Appropriate Technology (CCAT) from Fall 2009 to Spring 2010.
  • I have been interested in Permaculture design for a number of years, and I have experimented with several food system designs that have been based on Permaculture principles.
