I have a 12 acre small holding that is at the entrance to a gorge on the river Teifi. The land has older native woodland and newer (7-8 year) woodland that we planted since being here. I have a garden by the house that I am currently landscaping (doing my best to reuse the materials already here and plant insect and bird friendly plants as well as edible perennials - and a large fruit and vegetable growing area accessed through the woodland that is managed using no dig/permaculture/organic principles.
My amazing husband and I moved here 12 years ago but sadly, he died this year so I am also learning to live with grief whilst getting on with all that needs doing. I learned loads from him and now have an even steeper learning curve without him by my side.
I am longterm Vegan with grown up children in their 20s (who are all vegan pretty much too). I am deeply concerned about what humans have done and continue to do to harm our planet.
I live and teach both Alexander Teacher and Nonviolent Communication (NVC). My business is called Restoring Connections and that is also my mission in life.

We are located in west Wales, where Welsh is spoken widely so there is an opportunity to engage with the Welsh culture. That said, although I know lots of Welsh words, I don't speak it myself.
I am happy to talk to you Permaculture, Nonviolent Communication, Extinction Rebellion, Sustainability, Veganism and food, cultural differences and much more
I am also happy to have you meet my friends as and when I meet up with them and join me in anything I happen to do socially.
If you come here to help me you will need to be someone that loves nature, shares my values of wanting to learn from nature and help support biodiversity. Unless you come with someone, you will need to be someone that can work by yourself without getting lonely as I will not always be able to work with you.
That said, my experience of having helpers so far is that we have enjoyed interesting conversations at meal times about all sorts of topics - I hope I will learn from you as much as you learn from me. If you have interest in Nonviolent Communication, I will happily tell you all about it!
