  • Description

    Since September 2018 we have been travelling Europe, helping at various projects as we go. We return to the UK for mid-June, after some time in Germany with family from last weeks of May. Our home is our converted van which allows us to be self-sufficient. We have been members of Permaculture UK for over 20 years and re-built 90% of our previous timber home; its organic vegetable garden was very productive and kept us well-fed throughout most of the year. The projects we have worked on during our trip have involved garden construction and maintenance, timber and stone work, tree surgery and pruning. We are now heading for Italy and hope to work on a few projects there before having to begin our homeward journey.
