  • Description


    I would like help on my 3 acre small holding, initially the produce area

    This is an evolving growing to eat garden, with intention of growing as much produce as I can to be as self sufficient as possible in vegetables and fruits.
    Non profit making, for own consumption and sharing

    Would be lovely to grow, cook, eat & socialize with like minded people
    I would like to make a self sufficient garden area, which includes erecting greenhouses a polytunnel raised beds, fencing, growing & caring for crops, also my poultry

    Making a syntropic style garden with a perennial vegetable area along with introducing more beneficial flowers, small pond to create a natural balance within the garden, I'm not organic but do try to be very careful about what I use

    Also general cottage maintenance inside & out, tree and hedge cutting, gardening, planting a small orchard, decorating & organizing

    I live in a most beautiful place
    Am surrounded by miles miles & miles of countryside/forest walks
    Wild swimming a few mins walk

    Am on national cycle route no 82 if you enjoy cycling
    Cardigan bay is easily accessible where the seaside, wildlife and scenery can be explored

    Projects include erecting a polytunnel, second hand greenhouses, planting home grown & purchased plants

    Would be nice to meet like minded people who are interested in alternative ways of living to exchange knowledge as we can all keep learning new things everyday

    Exchanging culture's, especially different styles of cooking, trying new foods, ways of doing things is very inspiring
