About.

D Acres of New Hampshire is a not-for-profit Permaculture Farm and Educational Homestead located in Dorchester, NH. The Mission of the organization is to function as an educational center that researches, applies and teaches skills of sustainable living and small-scale organic farming. Striving to improve the human relationship to the environment, the center functions as a demonstration farm to role model exemplars of healthy living. Sharing a communal living situation, individuals come to respect and share values of interdependence and love of nature. The organization supports educational activities directed toward improving the quality of life of residents and the larger community.

Our day to day activities vary with the seasons. We host regular visitors, workshops and events. Recreational activities such as mountain biking, nordic skiing, boating and hiking are encouraged. Our agriculture system is no-till with edible forest gardening.  Author of Community-Scale Permaculture Farm
