What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a sustainable design system that provides for human needs while having positive effects on the surrounding environment.

It is based on the ethics of earth care, people care and fair share, and provides practical solutions to the global crises we are currently facing.

Permaculture is for EVERYONE, regardless of their education, background, or previous experience.

Permaculture is NOT just about trees, or just about gardening! You don't need loads of land to practice it and it's a design method that can be applied to all social systems.

We'll use your donations to further our plans to plant more trees and vines.

Making Memories

 

This is what memories are made of. Volunteer Maria helps me by holding Ziggy the Piggy whilst we syringe feed her.

Sadly Ziggy didn’t make it, despite our best efforts. We think it’s likely that the move was too much stress for such young piglets. Reg and Geraldine and settling in well […]

Winter hay

We’ve been working on storing winter hay and bedding today, taking advantage of glorious sun to dry it. With goats, pigs and sheep as well as poultry, we’re needing to up production this year.

Weak Piglet

 

This sweet little girl, one of our Vietnamese Pot Belly Piglets, is very weak today. We’re wondering if Mum’s milk has dried up as a reaction to the stress of transport. We’re topping her up with goat’s milk as an emergency measure.

Please wish her […]
