Permaculture community in 42 acre grassland and woodland

Landmatters Vision Statement:

To be a thriving, nature-connected permaculture community living low-impact solutions that reduce our ecological footprint, so we can be an active part of creating a sustainable world.

We connect with and steward the land in order to enhance its diversity, productivity and beauty, whilst providing an educational resource to the wider community.  

Mission statements:

We use permaculture Ethics, Principles and Design methods.

We are “learning by doing” - reskilling ourselves and others.

We use Consensus Decision-making process, and are committed to healthy communication using the “Way of Council” and other relevant tools.

We live off-grid in low-impact structures. We use wind and solar power, harvest woood and water from the land, and compost our own wastes.

We produce increasing amounts of food and other products from the land.

We make this land the focus of our livelihoods and activities, hosting visitors, volunteers and courses here.

We share and maintain communal spaces and vehicles.

We consciously connect to nature by being in touch with the elements, observing the natural world and celebrating the seasonal cycles.

We believe in positive change, working towards an equitable and sustainable future – personally, locally and globally.
