Park House Norwich
Park House was thoughtfully constructed in the 1950’s - the previous owners clearly had a good instinct for land and building design - however times change and from an energy, sustainability and food-growing viewpoint, it’s ripe for evolution along permaculture lines. The land consists of approximately two and half acres of mature mainly deciduous woodland, three acres of gardens and seven acres of silvopasture (grazing land with mature standard oaks).
7 adults share the spacious South-facing house, located 3.5 miles (25 mins cycle) from Norwich city centre.
We share the land with three free ranging chickens, two horses, some bees, wild deer, nesting owls and quite a few moles!
We have created a kitchen garden, polytunnel, camping site, 2 compost loos, wood-store, water harvesting, and a newly planted coppice wood. Our plans for 2017 include beginning a forest garden, and installing a Shepherd's Hut for recreational use, along with house renovations.
Many of the taught sessions of the PDC will take place in the comfortable lounge and meals in the conservatory of the house. Hot indoor showers will also be available to campers alongside basic outdoor facilities.
And finally... We are a ‘community of friends’ with a commitment to human relationships and environment. This means that the community has a 'family feel' about it, and we aspire to green living.
