About Anna Hopping

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.
