  • Description

    Description

    We are Peni and Stef and we are in year five of our successful one planet development.

    The site is about 5 acres, part of a larger 21 acre eco-project of four families. Part pasture, woodland orchard and scrub.
    We aim to be self sufficient in our vegetables we process a lot of veg to store over the winter months.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You'll spend a lot of time experiencing organic and permaculture farming techniques, and you'll experience living off-grid.
    We're part of a national movement of 'One Planet Developments' where the Welsh government encourages us to live on and make a living from the land, providing we make it productive, zero carbon and increase biodiversity. We and the other folk on site have a lot to say about ecology, building, green living and permaculture.

    We also play a lot of traditional folk music (for instance Breton) and frequently play at various gigs and dances which you might be able to attend, or they might even be on site. You may also be able to help Stef and learn a bit of traditional green woodworking, or learn the fundamentals of sound as he fashions music instruments from the wood he takes from our forest.

  • Help

    Help

    We would welcome help developing the site to be a productive smallholding. That means some building and also helping to landscape, grow veg, plant trees and bushes according to permaculture principals.
    We could also use a little help with IT.
