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.

May Foraging Challenge

Last month’s foraging challenge was great fun, and there just wasn’t time to experiment with all the ideas I was inspired to try. Which seemed like a great reason to extend it :) The idea is just to try and use as many foraged / wild foods as possible in our day to day meals. As the season changes, the range of things available will change, but I do preserve things when they are plentiful so there’s the odd item that’s not in season.

 

Edited: The business of getting the vegetable garden up and running for the season, and our new pigs, took over during May and I didn’t take the opportunity to photograph all the goodies that I made. Foraging ingredients to supplement what we grow is second nature now, but I really enjoy trying something different.
