ABOUT THE GREEN FIX
The Green Fix is dedicated to investigating and writing about solutions to conserve our wild places; to make our cities more sustainable, equitable, and livable; and to address the climate crisis.
This website began in early 2016 as Feel The Beckoning, a blog dedicated to inspiring people to get outdoors more often and connect with nature.
Since then the importance of addressing climate change and the importance of protecting our wild places - and ensuring that those who love our planet are well-educated and well-equipped to protect it- has become a more pressing concern and the focus of this project shifted.
As the purpose changed, so did the name, and The Green Fix was born.
The love of the outdoors never fades, though, and we will continue to feature stories about people enjoying the wilderness as well as articles about climate change and environmental policy.
MEET THE TEAM
Hannah started this website in 2016 after moving to Portland, Oregon, and falling in love with the West Coast wilderness. After three and a half years of backpacking, learning to love city biking, and teaching on an organic farm in Oregon, Hannah moved to Washington, D.C. to take the next step in her career in the fall of 2018. Hannah recently graduated with a Master's Degree in Sustainable Urban Planning from George Washington University and is dedicated to helping lead us towards a more resilient, equitable, and low-carbon world.
Kate has been connected to the natural world her entire life. As an adult, she has furthered that connection and helped others discover it by spending summers as a whitewater rafting and sea kayaking guide across the country from Maine to Alaska. Kate is currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Policy Planning and Management from the University of Southern Maine and is dedicated to preserving our wild places and the creatures that inhabit those spaces.
