The Kents Collective is a permaculture project. A bunch of people and animals living together off the land, aiming for happy healthy lives, while making a positive impact.
On the farm are chickens, ducks, geese, sheep, horses and our pet rabbit. Veg gardens, greenhouses, wild flowers, a woodland and at the moment we’re planting an orchard and food forest. Woodburners for heat and solar panels for electric. We’ve planted a forest for our future wood supply and this year we hope to add beehives and a polytunnel.
It’s all about finding different ways of living. We want to go beyond sustainable – putting in more than we take out. Enjoying the things we love; good food, fresh air, the beach, the surf, the countryside and sharing it with our guests, volunteers and community. We’re guided by the principles of permaculture; ‘Earth care,’ ‘People care’ and ‘Fair share’.
