A Tiny House sleeps two adults and offers a simple and efficient living space with an un-obscured view of the English Channel.

We welcome dedicated participants that want to learn by working to experience natural gardening.
We practice subsistence gardening as an alternative to the money consumer lifestyle, thick mulches cover our uncultivated soils, this mulch is provided by a public compost recycling service of 10m3 per day. This is a local free service that we offer for residents to drop off their garden green waste. We sell surplus fresh fruit and preserves. We grow mostly perennial crops like trees, shrubs, climbers, and other perennial plants are mixed in such a way as to mimic the structure of a natural forest which is the most stable and sustainable type of ecosystem in this climate.
We currently provide public guided tours of how we live and garden and offer practical further education of permaculture and low cost living. Leading you through the garden discussing plants, mulching, site design, soil building, sustainable living, alternative energy, and their integrated systems.
we also offer a "Introduction into permaculture" weekend course. please visit our website for more information. www.permacultureislanduk.com
