My name is Amber Lehrman and my family as lived in the Lawrence, Kansas area since 2003. I have a BSIE and MSIE (bachelors and masters in Industrial Engineering). I earned my Permaculture Design Certificate from Midwest Permaculture in 2014. I have trained over 400 adults in a variety of topics from food preservation to permaculture to natural childbirth since 2008.
We bought 40 acres in southern Jefferson County in 2012 and we have been building a sustainable, off grid homestead there since. We have built our own slip form stone and timber frame home and have begun creating a food production system based on permaculture principals.
