30+ year gardener although I lapsed for a few years. I currently reside in suburbia and have turned our 0.2 are property into a micro farm. We have 24 chickens, fruit trees, aqaponics, edible landscaping, water harvesting, worm composting, and a regular vegetable garden. We are working on bringing back to life a 6 acre farm that has been in the family for 150 years after 20 years of neglect. I have a background in pharmaceuticals, engineering, business and use these to the best of my ability helping my community. Recently completed Geoff Lawton's PDC and am applying what I learn at my own sites and advising others in and around my area. I teach and give classes in my area on just about anything I feel confident to speak about to get people thinking in a different direction. Gardening, canning, permaculture, aquaponics, water storage and purification, fire and fire starting, BOB's, community building, medicinal herbs, food storage, just to name a few. As much prepping related classes as people will listen to. We are a blended family and have four kids between us. 2-11 and it's challenges with different backgrounds and other parents houses. Some of this comes up in writings. Publisher of the website www.wolfbeachfarms.com and contribute to several other online, print, and e-magazines.
