My wife and I live in a wonderful part of the UK called Cornwall. We have long desired to start down the permaculture steps and finally it has started. We bought our own house and have started to use permaculture techniques. Over the next few days I will try to take some photos and explain what is happening in our garden and what will happen in the garden and house. But for now here is a list of ideas started:
- Recycling old shed
- Hugelkultur bed
- Solar panels
- Composting including worms
Hopefully as I continue to work the small area of land I will be able to post more information including the struggles.
In case you’re wondering, a Hugelkultur bed is a method of building a raised bed using trees, manure and compost. Aquaponics is using fish water to feed plants and plants to clean fish water. I’ll do a clearer description when I’m writing about them.
