Matthew TrauchtA big Global Site Plans welcome to our newest blogger, Matthew Traucht from Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Matthew Traucht graduated from the University of New Mexico with a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology and is now pursuing his Master of Landscape Architecture at the University of Minnesota’s College of Design. Inspired by the work he was doing as an archaeologist in New Mexico, where he studied prehistoric lifeways and preindustrial agricultural techniques, Matthew established an organic farm business. Eventually this led him to join the U.S. Peace Corps where he served as a Natural Resources Volunteer in Gambia from 2007-2009.  For the last five years he has been blogging about some of his observations about the interactions between nature and culture, most recently on Desire Lines.  Now, as a graduate student, Matthew is interested in sustainable communities, brownfield remediation, and historic cultural landscape preservation.

Matthew joins the May 2012 Environmental Design Internship program.
