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.

D’Rock

D’Rock is our boar, so called because he’s has Duroc blood. I don’t think we’d realised quite how big he’d got until we looked at this photo of him next to his girlfriend and Jeroen.

 

 

Booking places on our upcoming Permaculture Design Courses now. Please join us and meet d’Rock yourself!

Quite rainy

That’s the art of British understatement by the way.

Attaching new electric fence so we could move the pregnant pigs, after their shelter flooded.

Busy Day

Busy day, and soon a freezer full of meat. So many thanks to friends who helped.

Making Memories

 

This is what memories are made of. Volunteer Maria helps me by holding Ziggy the Piggy whilst we syringe feed her.

Sadly Ziggy didn’t make it, despite our best efforts. We think it’s likely that the move was too much stress for such young piglets. Reg and Geraldine and settling in well […]
