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.

Support our Project

We'll use your donations to further our plans to plant more trees and vines.

Happy Easter!

Even bunnies enjoy Easter egg hunts!

Coronavirus preparations

Okay, we don’t advocate bulk buying, but we have been doing what we can to make sure the pigs don’t go hungry!


House Ducks

Mrs Duck has moved into the house until her babies are less attractive to cats. It’s normal to have ducks in your bedroom, right?


Unhappy pigs!

It’s wet and miserable out there and we refuse to come out. Even for breakfast.

Harvesting the Christmas veg

It’s so wonderful being able to pick our own veg for the Christmas table. All homegrown!


Cauliflower harvesting

So pleased with this year’s cauliflowers, the first year we’ve been harvesting consistently good sized ones. Credit goes to Junior Farmer for superb preparation.



You know, one of the great things about growing a garden is that you can try again next year.

Here’s this year’s carrot harvest. I’m looking for recipe suggestions
