Applewood is a 20 acre smallholding in the beautiful hills of North Herefordshire. The owners, Designed Visions partners Chris Evans and Looby Macnamara, are developing a low-impact permaculture demonstration and training centre.
With permaculture, you need to see it to believe it, and then need to be able to learn it, and then acquire the resources (seeds, plants, books, friends and networks) to do it! The site at Applewood includes woods, pasture, a lake, kitchen garden and an orchard of heritage apples. These diverse habitats make for an incredible wildlife and people sanctuary… a converted barn & outbuildings provide indoor accommodation for courses, and the grounds a peaceful campsite.
And for those who are especially interested, Applewood Permaculture Centre offers an extra emphasis on social permaculture.
