About Hop Hopkins
As a certified arborist, Master Gardener, Permaculture Designer, and CERT instructor, Hop’s guiding vision is to help establish a network of residential food forests that can support the development of stable, human-scale solar self-reliant neighborhood communities integrated with cooperative local economies. Grassroots environmental justice community organizing in Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles, along with several years staffing environmental programs with the Los Angeles Conservation Corps and the Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust put Hop in the unique position of knowing a lot about a lot of things.
