Who Are We?
We are a group of friends who have many skills in permaculture, organic growing, sustainable design, eco-renovation and low impact living. We are all passionate about living sustainably, fresh organic foods and sharing time and knowledge with others.
What do we do?
We are preparing for our first season growing organic fruit and vegetables on our permanent sites. We have spent many years 'growing' our skills on various plots of land, big and small, but we now have 4 acres to create a permaculture centre close to Northampton town. We may also be taking on an additional 5 acres a little way out of the town, to allow us to expand our activities.
We provide a supportive environment for educational workshops, courses and public access, to actively participate and learn how to grow organically, live sustainably, gain experience of low-impact living, working co-operatively through community activities, and generally meet and share our space with others.
Throughout the seasons, we hold regular outdoor events and festival celebrations to mark the turning of the year. We will post info on these events so keep a look out for dates.
We host seminars and road shows around the county on many subjects relating to sustainability. If you would like to hold a seminar or talk in your village or town, please contact us and we can tailor it to suit your requirements. Again, we will be posting dates for the venues we are attending or organizing, so keep a look out for them too!
We hope you enjoy the site, and post any comments, as we welcome your views.
We are in the early stages of creating a Sustainability Centre in Northamptonshire. Why? Because there are many people, who need access to learning the life skills needed, to adapt to the changes being brought about by Climate Change, the mass urbanization of this county, and because we wanted to help people change their lives for the better and become sustainable, using knowledge and easily accessible low cost or FREE resources.
