Permaculture Garden

The garden

The garden is a community project, originally founded by Richard Diss and Alex Greaves, and is now maintained by Alex and Kim McFadden. The vision is to relearn the value of connecting with nature in more meaningful ways. We cultivate a wide range of medicinal herbs, flowers, fruit and vegetable using regenerative methods based on Permaculture and Biodynamics.

We observe the many interactions that take place within Nature, the rhythm and flow of the seasons and work with them in order to co-create a space that is abundant with life for the benefit of all.

Nature provides us with everything we need to thrive, from the food that nourishes us, the medicinal herbs that can keep us balanced, to the ecosystem that sustains us and all our relations. We honour this by sharing our experience tending the land and plants via courses, workshops, and open days with a view to aid others to awaken to the abundance in Nature and gift the principles of how to do this in a mutually beneficial way in their communities.

Alex & Kim both trained in Biodynamic horticulture, Q’ero medicine practices and Nature Connection Mentoring and are passionate about creating communities rooted in reverence for the Natural world and working with people to bring out their innate gifts and share them with the world. They founded the Wild Roots Nature Connection Community to support Culture Regeneration via Nature Connection.
