About Michael Hoag

Permaculture teacher and designer, homesteader, forest garden designer and researcher, researcher of wild ecologies and naturally occurring plant communities, with an interest in the aesthetics of garden history and architecuture. I am passionate about applying Permaculture to our existing housing strock and living systems. For more information, please see www.lilliehouse.blogspot.com

Growing up on a small farm in Flushing, Michigan, I learned to love nature and farming, but also that conventional farming was exploitive of both the earth and farmers, who could hardly afford to do their good work of "feeding the world." In 2002, I first learned of Permaculture while working in political activism with the Green Party and the Public Interest Research Group in Michigan and immediately believed it was a more effective and joyful means of affecting real change. Over the next decade, I studied market gardening, organic farming, foraging, herbology and Permaculture design with various teachers, and worked on a variety of Projects culminating in our current project, Lillie House. We began planning, project design and development in 2008-2009 and purchased our property in 2010, beginning work on the site at that time.

These days most of my work surrounds our Permaculture homestead, Lillie House, where we do design work, educational programs, grow food, tend a set of forest gardens and a coppice lot, and raise a wide variety of perennial edible and medicinal plants.
