This property will eventually be our home. The house is habitable but needs a few finishing touches. There is no heating yet.
The project has taken us a while and the garden has been neglected but still produces a lot of fruit. Some trees need to be removed and others need to be planted. We are building raised bed vegetable plots which will be easy to manage.
The fruit that is already there and the vegetables we will grow will make us almost self-sufficient.
We already eat as naturally as possible even though it is becoming more and more difficult to find food that does not have some chemical content. We aim to grow as much of it as we can for our own consumption.
One of my projects is experimenting with food preservation techniques. I also want to use as much as possible and so want to find more things to do with the fruit. How many ways can you think of to use oranges or lemons? I have made some lovely cleaning products which do not kill the bacteria in our waste system.
Come and stay with us and join us in working out how to grow and preserve fruit and vegetables.
You will gain experience in:- preparing an organic garden, project planning, soil analysis to determine what can and cannot be grown, natural food preservation techniques.
