Hi guys!

That is what I say at the beginning of all my YouTube videos so it feels appropriate here. My name is Julianne and many of you call me Dirtpatch. My husband is Mr. Dirt and I have two little Dirt kids as well.

Enough with introductions, I am a food production fiend… it is a problem sometimes. Our little 1.5 acre farm feeds us very well and that is something I want to teach you how to do as well. But what if you don’t have that much property you ask? No problem, the majority of our food production happens in my fenced in backyard, even my livestock are fed off of what is grown there. How do I do it? Permaculture. But not just any permaculture, I use every method out there and combine it until it fits my own needs.

I hope you will continue to read and watch my own experiments as I would love to have everyone feel like it is not only possible but a sure thing to feed your own family from the soil!

Love you guys! Talk to you later!
