#* Appropedia intends to establish a program that would link travelers with communities or projects focused around appropriate technology and intentional living.  Travelers would be given an opportunity visit their country or region of interest and to have an in-depth experience there with an intentional community or appropriate technology project.  As an alternative to volunteer travel programs in which the volunteers are contributing labor, Appropedia volunteer travelers would be asked to make contributions to the Appropedia database, updating older entries or creating primary documentation about the community they are visiting.

== Contributions ==
I am a recent graduate of [[Humboldt State University]] where I studied Botany. I am particularly interested in conservation biology with a focus in the neotropics.  I hope to study ecosystems and help to develop tools to protect the land while supporting and empowering local communities. I also have a passion for “alternative” healing and am a practitioner of massage, Reiki (energy work), holistic massage, herbalism, meditation and yoga.    I also enjoy singing, playing my ukulele and climbing trees.

You can find her in New Orleans studying endophytic fungi, playing her washboard, and writing about science for mongabay.com. Liz received her BS in Botany from Humboldt State University in 2010.

Appropedia[edit]

Liz served as the first Appropedia Travel Intern.

In 2010 Liz visited intentional/green communities and projects in South and Central America with the following goals:

  1. To document positive functional aspects of the community /project to post on Appropedia. These aspects may be technological, social, or structural, etc.
  2. To assess if these places are an appropriate fit for the project described below.
    • Appropedia intends to establish a program that would link travelers with communities or projects focused around appropriate technology and intentional living. Travelers would be given an opportunity visit their country or region of interest and to have an in-depth experience there with an intentional community or appropriate technology project. As an alternative to volunteer travel programs in which the volunteers are contributing labor, Appropedia volunteer travelers would be asked to make contributions to the Appropedia database, updating older entries or creating primary documentation about the community they are visiting.
