Pictures, Design, and Plans

This page has moved to my new site, The Sustainable Smallholding, and can be read HERE. The content has been largely replaced by the much more detailed design, which can be read on the WOLDS WOODLAND FARMING PROJECT page.

  1. Hello Deano, This is treemendous work you are doing!!!
    I am an urban edible landscape designer, but as I head into “retirement” I want to design Edible hedgerows. This is how I found you today.You blogs and sites are so important and join us like cedar roots reaching for one another.I studied stained glass in Swansea ’77-’79 and spent my weekends in the Beacons. I live on Vancouver Island,BC Canada with a similar climate – the wetcoast. Thanks for all things…cheers Helena

  2. Hi Helena
    Thanks for your comments. I tried to check your site out, but couldn’t find it. Not sure why.
    I loved the beacons, although running up and down them would be impossible for me now!
    Wishing you well

  4. Thank you very much for your comment Patrick.
    I’m still a relative beginner myself, but hope to help others, by passing on what I learn.

    Good Luck in yourown endeavours

  8. Hi Darius.Thanks for your comments. The patterning started off as an observation, and then made it’s way into the thinking.
