Fern Cottage is a permaculture smallholding with a young forest garden in development, a vegetable garden and experimental polycultures. We hold a permaculture social every 2 months

ThosePlantPeople are developing a 4 acre piece of land from an ornamental garden and grazing land into a highly productive system. Many fruit trees are now producing good crops with the understory still developing. They aim to grow as much of their own food and fuel whilst providing a haven for biodiversity. They will be guided by permaculture principles to make decisions about how to adapt the land and to pass this experience and knowledge to others. Their expert knowledge of horticulture has led to research and experiments in edible polycultures which are still evolving.
