Wishtree is near Black Torrington in North Devon. We are an off grid, 5 acre food forest project, consisting of culm grassland and a a natural woodland system consisting of a variety of deciduous trees. Our goal is to transform this young woodland into a resilient, abundant, and beautiful ecosystem demonstrating various ways to use forest gardening in small scale growing systems.
Wishtree is home to North Devon Permaculture CIC, a social enterprise
Wishtree is a residential home and permaculture business. We welcome pre booked visits.
Current systems that we have on site are an emergent food forest and other growing beds demonstrating small scale food forestry. A polytunnel and microfarm. We are working on building a treebog but currently have another small compost toilet. We are in the process of creating a teaching space and putting in a clay oven. We welcome volunteers who are interested in learning about Permaculture and resilient living. We have also planted up a small orchard.
We have gradually worked the land to replace the rush with grass, which is easier to manage and will be eventually replaced with full growing systems.
We are part of the local social prescription as part of supporting people with mental illness.
The project is based in a rural location in Devon among a farming community between Hatherleigh and Holsworthy. We offering camping as part of our social enterprise as well as live on and work with the land. For more information please visit our website northdevonpermaculture.com
