A chance meeting on a rainy Welsh hillside in 2007 led to me hearing about Permaculture for the first time. We were struggling to reverse our old Merc 709 camper van up a muddy track when we met another couple in a similar bus. We struck up a friendship and spent a few days camped up together talking about our fears and hopes for the future. The ideas we discussed were familiar but the term ‘Permaculture’ was not and since then I have strove to find out more.
I am studying for a Diploma in applied permaculture design.The aim of this blog is to keep a record of my ideas, plans, activities and designs. The blog can be viewed chronologically, or you can search under a keyword or you can choose to view each completed diploma design in the pages in the header bar.
I have a good-sized garden in the suburbs, access to a community allotment, an ever-changing flock of chickens and aspirations to one day become a smallholder. I am lucky to be supported in these eccentricities by a lovely husband and 3 fabulous children.
