Hi, my name is Alison Ensor and I run our house and garden as a permaculture demonstration LAND Centre (through the Permaculture Association scheme). I have a diploma in Applied Permaculture Design and run workshops and open days to help others get inspired too.
Please take a look!
We have been spending most of 2017 building our new strawbale roundhouse studio and have loads of photos showing the progress to date - please take a look at the new RoundHouse project page.
If your interested in joining a new Permaculture Group meeting up to help out on projects, learn stuff and meet local permies please contact me via the Contact page and I'll add you to the list to receive emails.
The new Programme for 2018 will be out soon with lots of ideas for how to introduce permaculture into your garden or allotment, or live just a bit more 'eco-creatively'.
Please LIKE us on Facebook to get updates and photos of progress on projects and up and coming events and workshops or you can email me to get notice by email.
