As a teen, Leonard Edmondson worked as a clover seed combine operator and in the shop on the family farm through the hot Sacramento summers. A serious amateur musician, he plays bassoon and flute in the Kensington Symphony, Octangle Woodwind Octet, Northbrae Ensemble, Presidio Woodwind Quintet, and for the Dances of Universal Peace. Leonard dances for enjoyment: Balkan and Israeli folkdance in the 80's, and more recently freestyle Ecstatic Dance. In his 40's he started juggling clubs, and learned to ride unicycle when he was 55. Three years ago he began sewing his own backpacking gear from kits on a refurbished Singer 66 "Red Eye" treadle sewing machine.
In 2014, Leonard was trained as a greywater installer by Laura Allen, co-founder of Greywater Action and one of the nation's leading greywater proponents. He has lived in Albany for 35 years and supports his greywater habit by working part-time as a software engineer.
His wife Catherine is a keen gardener and brings a balancing voice to the discussion. When you hire us, you get two for one.
