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.

Kylie’s Kids

In the manner of goats everywhere, Kylie has again surprised us. Horny and Misty have been wandering around like overstuffed sofas for weeks and weeks, but Kylie just started looking a little more solid than normal about ten days ago. I’d realised she was pregnant, obviously, but not appreciated quite how far along she was. So the two little goat kids found in the shed on Sunday morning were a bit of a shock!

Here they are at just a couple of hours old. For the uninitiated, the one with the big ears is a rabbit! The little white kid had me quite worried as she was struggling to stand on one of her back legs, but within no time the ligaments has tightened up and now she is bouncing around with her brother.

What a difference a day makes! And now I realise why it’s said that photographers should avoid working with animals!
