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.

Meet the sheep (and the rest of us!) by joining us on our full accredited Permaculture […]

It’s a wonderful time of year to be a Goat

Meet Lambert Geeny

 

This is Lambert Geeny, our new ram and future patriarch of what we’re hoping will become our new sheep empire.

About two minutes after I took this photo Lambert chased Mr Goat all around the field. Mr Goat is now sulking in his shed, nursing his ego. Lambert is stalking the fence […]

Stuck Kid

Goats, when left alone, spend their time plotting new and ingenious ways to escape and frustrate me, trapping themselves in ever more inventive ways in the process. This youngster is no exception, and has managed to get himself stuck in between these fences. His brother was in there too when I was alerted […]

The little chaps above belong to Schneckle, and we’re glad to see them safely arrive as it seemed to have been the longest pregnancy ever! The downside of keeping Mr Goat with the ladies is we don’t have a […]
