New forest garden

From bare paddock to forest garden – a large scale design

Some Words About This Project


This project relates to the Horses in Permaculture design, as we are taking one of the paddocks previously used for horse grazing and developing it into a mixed forest garden area. To recap, we looked at the three fields that we use for horse grazing, and realised that not only is one field only actually used for about  8 weeks a year, because it is either too wet or too bare, but that because part of it is more boggy, only a very small area is actually useful grazing. We could put the land to far better use.

Their 'hobbit house' was the thing that got me started on my journey over a decade ago, and I was fortunate enough to meet and work with this amazing couple at Lammas Eco village in Pembrokeshire.

Builders and permaculture designers,

Suzie has taught me a great deal, not only through the PDC that I completed at Dulra, but through following her journey as she set up and established Carraig Dulra Permaculture Farm.

Charles' no nonsense approach to no dig growing has transformed the way I look at producing food, and his deep understanding of permaculture has been an inspiration. He was also kind enough to support our crowdfunding back in 2013.
