Michelle Hernandez has raised chickens, guineas, and ducks for most of the past decade. She enjoys tackling and innovating environmentally-themed projects that benefit the community. Hernandez founded and manages the 501(c)(3) non-profit Urban Poultry Association of Texas, Inc., including it's annual Funky Chicken Coop Tour and the monthly meetings of the Austin and Central Texas Backyard Poultry Meetup. She is passionate about clean, healthy local food and dedicates time to serve the community, including through urban DIY food outreach, volunteering at Permablitzes, and serving on a local Food Co-operative's Board of Directors.
With her passions for nature, healthy food, planning, community, and good design, Permaculture had her at "hello"! She successfully completed her 72-hour Permaculture Design Certificate coursework and final design project in fall 2013 and is applying Permaculture design principles wherever she can.
She continues to teach and organize events for integrating poultry into a backyard food production system. She also volunteers regularly with monthly Permablitz installations in Central Texas. She is excited to be hosting the March 2015 Permablitz at her place! More information of upcoming Permablitzes and other events is available on the Austin Permaculture Guild's website at AustinPerm.com or on the Facebook group, Texas Permaculture Design Projects.
Come join us at a Permablitz on March 14-15, 2015, hosted by the Austin and Central Texas Backyard Poultry Meetup and the Austin Permaculture Guild.
