Golden Valley Permaculture Centre
The venue is 10 acres of recently acquired pasture comprising 2 fields on the side of the beautiful Golden Valley in South Herefordshire. Here, the owners, Designed Visions partners Chris Evans and Looby Macnamara, are developing a low-impact permaculture demonstration and training centre. We feel that with permaculture, you need to see it to believe it, and then need to be able to learn it, and then acquire the resources (seeds, plants, books, friends and networks) to do it!
We have a lovely view of the valley and the Welsh mountains beyond. The area is steeped in local history with the Neolithic Arthur’s Stone just a short walk away.
As we’ve only recently acquired the site the facilities are basic, but we will ensure the infrastructure is in place for a comfortable stay to compliment the inspirational learning experience: a warm and comfortable classroom, kitchen and fine food, and washing facilities. There is no electricity or internet on site.
