Hi, I am Joan Lenart, a member of the technical team. I have certificates in informational data systems, master gardeing and eco-therapy. I have always been interested in the environment and feel I benefit from being out in nature.. Following the teachings of Dr. Jim and Basia, I have grown to respect nature in an all encompassing way. Every single thing has a purpose and the more I understand its purpose, the easier it is to live in harmony. While I have done some traveling, I yearn to experience the rest of the world. I see life as an adventure!  Joan can be reached at liaison@cooperativebiobalance.org
