Meg Hobbs has found her current challenge on an old 5-acre farm in the foothills of Northern California. A farm in ruins, but with lots of hope was named Abundant Life Farm. Meg is a certified Permaculture Designer with a life-long project of her own. She spends her weekdays working as an Electrical Engineer who designs power and lighting systems for her small consulting firm, Spectral Engineering. Meg started her young adult life as an artist [drawing, crafting, designing clothes and jewelry, as well as making light fixtures and refinishing furniture], but soon discovered that she needed a more scientific component along with the creativity. Engineering and Permaculture have proven to meet the challenge.
