For the past six months I have been studying in the evenings. At the end of June I submitted my final assignment to complete my Permaculture Design Course.
It all started with a seven day video course that was free through High Sierra Permaculture.
Living a life that is more in touch with the outdoors, the seasons and nature makes you really reflect.
Learning about growing our own food, living sustainable and being more environmentally friendly seemed ideal given our circumstances.
We have all become vegetarian and I am vegan.
Partly due to environmental reasons, partly due to health reasons and also partly due to having a small budget and a small fridge!
Anyway. Over the past six months I have learnt about soil, regenerative farming, organic food forests, thermal mass building techniques, food preservation, garden design, water management and much much more!
Using the house in France as my inspiration my final design has been submitted for assessment. So, here it is 🙂
