About Me

Hey THERE! I'M LISA!


I'm your average every day serial hobbiest. I enjoy worm farming, chicken farming, gardening, planting, sowing and sometimes reaping. I'm learning about permaculture, and making plans for our future.

If there's something self sustainable I can learn or do, hook me up. I'm all about it.

I'm not perfect, and I don't think I'll ever be.

WHY DIRT EMPIRES?

Okay. Dirt. Generally associated with... dirt, but dirt isn't a bad thing. Dirt is one of the most important things on our planet. Trees grow from it, we derive food from it, plants, animals live in it. As "they" say, God made dirt, dirt won't hurt.

Then Empires? Okay. Well, I imagine one day opening up my front door and looking at the small field beside my house and seeing it fully buzzing with all manner of plant, animal and insect. Growing healthily from the toils of my labor.

Also, there's a really cool line in "Hurt" (you've heard that song, right?), "And you could have it all
My empire of dirt", and really I'm just a Johnny Cash fan. 

WHY Permaculture?

I want to grow our own food. Not just grow it, but I wanna eat it, too. I want to reduce our trips to the grocery store, I want to grow more locally.
I have goals, but like I said, I'm not perfect. It will take some time, but day by day, we'll evolve and do better. I'll learn more. I'll grow. I'll write about it.

ABOUT MY FAMILY

Besides myself, there's my husband Shane, and daughter Sybil.
