Tony Troia

Instructor for Permaculture & Gardening

At the age of 23, Tony purchased a single steep acre of land in Madison county. Over the past decade Tony has put the “theories” of permaculture to the test on this small tract of land. Trial and error, failures along with the occasional success, has bestowed them with a well rounded, and hard earned set of skills. Forest gardening, animal husbandry, beekeeping, carpentry and rainwater harvesting are among Tony’s primary interests. Tony was one of the primary characters in National Geographic’s “Live Free or Die.”
