Welcome to our website !

In this site you should find what amounts to an on-line Permaculture design course. You’ll understand what Permaculture really is and you’ll learn how to apply the ethics and principles to your own life.

We’ll show you hundreds of practical examples of how we bought land, created gardens, built sheds and a house, live off-grid, keep chickens, goats, sheep and pigs and integrate our lives with the lives of those around us.

You’ll have an insight into the everyday problems we face and the joys and frustrations of a lifestyle which is as resilient and as honest as we can make it.

At the same time as managing to make a modest living we have plenty of time for fun and sharing – all within an ethical Permaculture framework.

If you’re in a hurry, bookmark the site and come back later, because there’s a lot of content and we’ll be adding even more.

I hope you enjoy it.
