About

I am the founder of Daily Acts, a permaculture-based organization and Board Chair of Transition U.S. We work with citizens, leaders, agencies and networks to provide community-based solutions, which harness the power of nature and inspired action to build leadership and local self-reliance. This ranges from installing food forests from front yards to City Hall landscapes to mobilizing thousands of sustainability actions as part of the Community Resilience Challenge, a Daily Acts program that has been replicated regionally and nationally.

Joanna has researched community resilience in the City University, and Speak Street is a direct outcome of that. When she’s not running Speak Street, she loves running, saving bees, and gin and tonic, not necessarily in that order.
