After a break over Jan and Feb we’re now spring cleaning and preparing everything for the busy season. The yurts will officially open on the 4th of April. We’re also ordering in a few more yurts and will have some for sale soon! Here are a couple of pics of our guys at the workshop in Mongolia. Please get in touch if you’re interested 🙂
We’ve planted all the trees. Thanks so much to all our friends, family and our lovely volunteers, we couldn’t have done it without you! Now they all need mulching, staking and tree guards.
We’ve planted 100 oak, plus maple, sweet chestnut, walnut, silver birch, scots pine, blackthorn, hazel, crab apple, wild cherry, small leaved lime, rowan, spindle, dog rose and alder.
Over the last week we have been building fences and preparing for the arrival of our 575 trees from the Woodland Trust! Today they have finally arrived. We have all the positions marked out and are ready to start planting tomorrow with our team of volunteers Exciting!!
We’re super excited to be featured in this season’s issue of Permaculture Magazine. The article is all about how we designed and built our wood fired rocket stove hot tub! With full instructions on how to build your own. You can donwload it or order a copyhere.
Here are our newly rescued ex-battery hens, thanks to the Hens Welfare Trust. Looking a bit mangey but hopefully they’ll soon recover and be ready to go outside for the first time
The factory farms ‘dispose’ of the hens when they are a year old as they become less than 100% efficient. The lucky ones are collected by the welfare trust and re-homed. If you want to read more about it or you’re up for rescuing some hens check out their site here.
