I teach and host courses and events with others through our non-profit workers co-operative, Tangleha Artists Collective. We are situated right by the sea in a small hamlet, Tangleha, in Tangleha House. Here we have a large open studio space, quest accommodation and a small forest garden.
Since 2009 we have been renovating the house to make it more energy efficient and we are also establishing food forests in the adjoining land. We have an edible plant nursery, supplying gardens and unfarmed land in the surrounding local area. This is added to with all profits from the Collective being used to purchase more edible perennial plants.
We host courses and regularly accept volunteers to stay with us and help out with our Permaculture design and implementation. We have also established an outdoor education business, Embark Nature School, which we run from a local woodland that we help to maintain and from a beach on the local St Cyrus National Nature Reserve.
We also organise events from green woodworking and skill shares to permaculture design and eco-building. We participate in the development of different projects around the U.K. and Europe, including music festivals, farms, gardens, nature reserves and buildings.
