About Matthew Trumm

My name is Matthew Trumm, but everyone calls me Matt Trees. I moved up to 12 acres in the Sierra Nevada Foothills 6 years ago looking to learn how to be self sufficient and live off the land. My home is off grid with solar for energy and wood for heat.I taught myself how to garden and learned my local area while working trails with USFS. Then I read One Straw Revolution and my world changed. I started to use natural gardening methods and soon after discovered Permaculture and food forests. I have been on a wild ride ever since and believe that THIS design science is the way forward. My focus had been simply on the food producing elements originally, and all my experience has been me experimenting on my land and becoming more convinced in natural designed systems.

I received a grant last year to build a forest garden demonstration site with outdoor classroom at our new community park. I teach workshops with locals and the students from the Elementary School, which is located next to the project. I am in the middle of the 2015 online PDC with Geoff Lawton right now, and at the same time assisting a local Permaculture teacher (Rosa Macias..Perma Funk) with teaching the first local PDC in our area! By the time the course starts in May I will already have my PDC completed and will immediately get to learn what teaching a PDC is like and working in group dynamics. I am really excited to see where the next leg of my journey will lead. It has been amazing so far and this wonderful field has blown my mind a million times over. Blessings to all who are doing the wonderful work needed to restore our beautiful planet. Cheers!
