Thanks so much for visiting me here at Tenth Acre Farm!
Do you have an inexplicable desire to have your hands in the dirt? Tenth Acre Farm is for everyone who loves playing in the garden and tinkering with plants.
Here at Tenth Acre Farm, I share tips for applying permaculture design to small-scale residential spaces: backyard gardens, front yard edible landscapes, and suburban micro-farms.
I have a passion for discovering ecologically friendly techniques for growing food that are easy to maintain and increase biodiversity.
