  • Description


    I am a lecturer in History with a passion for permaculture. With that in mind I have recently moved to Southern Catalonia and purchased a neglected olive grove of 12 acres which my seven-year son and I are slowy starting to regenerate using the principles laid down by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren. We would welcome anyone who has a genuine interest in learning more or sharing what they already know in the areas of Permaculture, Natural Building and Eco-living. I have very, very little knowledge of Catalan or Spanish so would also welcome speakers of those languages particularly.
