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.

Hemlock Water Dropwort

Hemlock water dropwort (Oenanthe crocata) is a plant toxic to both humans and livestock. It grows luxuriantly in the stream here, and anywhere wet. We need to clear it periodically otherwise it blocks the flow of water in winter. We use it as a mulch if we catch it before it’s seeded, or hot compost it if it has, but SO much of it. This pile represents about a third of what we’ve just cut, and we’ll do it again towards the end of the summer.
