Trying to create a forest garden and permaculture centre in France. Slowly restoring an old farmhouse with traditional materials and sourcing wood from the land around the building. Started the forest garden with the first fruit and nut trees planted in 2017 and growing well. The one hectare of established sweet chestnut/oak/beech/hornbeam woodland is being managed mainly for wildlife at present. A hectare of bramble and bracken is gradually being converted to woodland and back to meadow while also maintaining some important scrub areas for wildlife.
