My name is Anna hopping, my grand parents lived off the land and there have been times where we farmed in different parts of the country both as a child and as an adult. I have experience in raising animals on a dairy farm and gardening typical rows with out commercial fertilizer. Some of them plowed with a horse. And then I began to learn more organic soil building techniques. My degree is in Industrial technology I worked a few years before I focused on raising my family as a stay at home mom and farm activities.
A few years ago I heard a little about permaculture Not having the money I didn’t purchase books on the subject and classes were too expensive. I liked the idea of permanent food planting. It fit into my own idea of what I wanted very well. I had a friend show me the permacuture projects he had done. It was interesting. He gave me some ideas for my place and I was off and running. I found the harvesting rainwater volume 1 book at a low price and got even more excited. Then I bought the volume 2 on line. And I went to work planning and implementing my first steps. Just recently I saw You tube videos on permacuture and wow. I had no idea what it was about not really and I have been devouring all I can get a hold of.
I am so excited about putting in a food forest and extending my water catchment systems. Water is the key. This year I have seen things I had missed before in the land. My eyes are being trained to see what is there and what actions to take. I am all excited about sharing what I am learning and want to tell every one.
