  • Description

    Description

    We live in la Manche, not far from the sea and are surrounded by unspoilt countryside. Our permaculture project is a large domestic garden about 3,9 acre (1,8 ha) where we grow annual and perennial vegetables. We provide the vegetables beds,with a large amount of compost and we mulch to protect the soil against wind and dehydration. We are self-sufficient in vegetables. Herbs are planted all around in the vegetable garden to attract bees and other benefical insects.
    You can also see a herb spiral, a selfmade reedbed, a greenhouse made with recycled material, a henhouse, a solar thermal installation, a dry toilet system,...
    Anne has successfully completed a Permaculture Design Course with the Permaculture Association. We are teaching people how to grow vegetables in a permaculture way.
