Creighton Hofeditz grew up in Morrison, Colorado and obtained an B.A. in theater and communication at Northwestern University. He lived in Chicago for two years and taught English in Japan for another two before switching career paths with a permaculture design course at the Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute in 2011. That course completely changed his outlook and focused his passions around sustainability and working for a better, more equitable future. He has since designed home landscapes, a highway exit, a school farm, and was part of the creating the original DMHS Occupations curriculum before the school opened. He’s placed special emphasis on greenhouses, perennial plant propagation, and community education, and spent 2013 and 2014 apprenticing at Bullocks' Permaculture Homestead in Washington State. He worked with Peter Bane during the editing process of The Permaculture Handbook and is a contributing author on Jerome Osentowski’s book The Forest Garden Greenhouse. Creighton is currently the president of the board of the Denver Permaculture Guild and teaches permaculture design courses for adults throughout the year. He is thrilled to be a full-time part of the DMHS team after several years of association with this groundbreaking, courageous, and important school.
