Grow Your Own Soil with Permaculture
Certified permaculture designer, Amy Antonucci, knows that great gardens start with great soil and the permaculture practices that build it – inches at a time. In this program she addresses how simple methods utilizing readily available, inexpensive materials can create magnificent gardens without digging or rototilling. Participants learn how to create, nurture, and protect the ecosystem with simple techniques including sheet mulching and hugelkultur as well as how to understand soil test results. Amy Antonucci began growing food in 1995 on a local organic farm and CSA. She later became a permaculture designer and transitioned to homesteading with her goats, poultry, bees and plants at Living Land Permaculture Homestead in Barrington, NH. She is the main organizer for Seacoast NH Permaculture and was named NOFA-NH’s Leading Gardner of 2017. In addition, she teaches workshops on homesteading topics including permaculture, soil building, no-till gardening, composting, herbal infusions, beekeeping, cheese and yogurt making, and food preservation.
