    Description

    It is my first year with a flower field. My flower field is ecofriendly and uses regenerative principles. We will pick bouquets and make a road stall shop. And i am looking forward, that soon everything will be very beautiful.
    I am a permaculture gardener and a permaculture teacher.
    we are going to grow vegetables for us selves, and plant a forest garden with fruit trees and perennial vegetables and scrubs, by using permaculture principles. I can teach you about permaculture and how to grow your own food.

    Maybe while you stay here, we will renovate an old compost toilet, in a sustainable way, and use clay at the walls and floor.
    You will have your own bedroom, kitchen, shower and living room at the farm. But there is also a couch and a table in the living room next to a plant nursery.
    I am interesting in aqua ponding and if you are interested in aqua ponding too, it would be fun to try out.

    I am also an artist, so if you would like to make art, I have a clay kiln and and some paint.

    most days in the week you will make your own food, because I am together with my family at nighttime.
    I do not live at the farm yet, but me and my family, will move there in a year or two. we are renovating the 1.st floor, right now.
    I live in the neighborhood, in the local area, together with my husband and two kids, who is 12 and 15 years old.

    The farm is a bit old fashioned, look at the picture.
    But the heat, refrigerator, stove and shower, all works.

    At the farm we have 4 Scottish cows and 3 rabbits.
    I cooperate with another Permaculture farm sometimes we will go there and help, and meet some more permaculture people, who are all involved in the Danish permaculture movement.
