I grew up on the farm where I now live again. I moved away for about 10 years, but came back to practice Permaculture on the property.
I just finished my PDC with Geoff Lawton. I intend to convert our farm's 100 acres into a Permaculture incubation/ demonstration site for Southeastern Wisconsin. Right now, we are running a successful CSA off of 2.5 acres. It's a lot of work and we'd like to afforest our land with productive woody perennials as soon as possible. We also have 9 acres of pasture that will grow into Silvopasture throughout the property.
This fall, we will be planting hazelnuts and other compatible species as our first big project with the community.
