Amy Stross, author of The Suburban Micro-Farm: Modern Solutions for Busy People, is an permaculture gardener, writer, and educator with a heritage in food creation.
At age 33, Amy fell ill with an autoimmune disorder, and started exploring healthy lifestyle choices as a way to cope.
Her very first thing in her journey was supposed to combine a local organic farm’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) system in which she collected a weekly talk of new produce. She believed the application was so cool that she combined the staff, and also helped to operate the program that feeds over 100 families per year.
She moved on to work for a professional landscape gardener, that specialized in environmentally friendly and raw landscapes. She discovered that healthful fruits and vegetables could grow right out her own kitchen door.
After getting her permaculture design certification, she began to design productive, edible landscapes that also regenerate ecological integrity.
Her very own 0.10-acre house scale micro-farm became a thriving example of a successful yet aesthetically pleasing landscape, together with berry bushes, cherry trees, blossoms, flowers, and vegetable raised beds.
Amy also directed the growth of a community garden at her community university, in which, with the support of community residents, she changed a forgotten hillside to a food-producing forest. With this work she was awarded the Urban Bounty Award for ‘changing lives and building community throughout the crop of community gardening’.
Her current adventures include changing a fresh 3.3-acre property to some biodiverse micro-farm with her husband along with mischievous farm kitty.
She reaches hundreds of thousands of individuals with her adventures and experience in small-scale permaculture gardening on her favorite website, TenthAcreFarm.com.
