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.

Learning about Bees at The Hive

Jeroen took a course on beekeeping organised by the local beekeepers co-operative some time ago, when we originally purchased our hives. I’ve never had any training in beekeeping though, so I was thrilled when The Hive offered another Introduction to Beekeeping Workshop. The Hive are a local cultural co-operative focussing on sustainable education.

Apiculturist Kev talked our small group through some theory and showed us the necessary equipment, then we suited up and braved the weather to take a look at some operational hives up on the hillside nearby. Bees buzzing all around is a tremendous feeling and I enjoyed the session immensely.

Then back to The Hive for a delicious lunch and chat. Many thanks to the Hive team and Kev for a superb day.
