Description
The land was previously a paddock and now we have taken to growing fruit and vegetables in raised beds and standard beds. There are a number of projects on the go.....clearing land for soft fruit, an apple tunnel espalier and a new flower border. I practice permaculture and have good compost made this year to spread over the beds, and have a wormery on the go.
We have some poultry and a couple of Alpaca to guard them.There are also 4 bee hives which need management in the summer.
The village we live in is small and friendly and the wonderful historic town of Sherborne is only a few miles away.
I look forward to imparting my knowledge of permaculture and growing of vegetables and learning from volunteers.
