Check out Wirksworth Eco Centre- they do some good and inexpensive courses on straw bale and lime building and things.
Having just come back from the Eden Project I'd highly recommend it, but it's on such a huge scale as to be completely unobtainable as far as building plans go. The Lost Gardens of Heligan is nearby, and has restored Victorian glasshouses, including a working manure-heated pineapple pit- I'd recommend going to visit, it seems much more realistic as far as home-building goes. Also Chatsworth House has some good glasshouses that are sometimes open, and any botanical gardens (Edinburgh botanical gardens glasshouses are amazing! As is Kew Gardens- they have modern builds as well as the original Victorian ones).

I was just wondering how many permies regulars were from the UK

I have I've got an allotment which I have 2 Hugelkultur beds on and use the Ruth stout mulching method. I keep bees on my kitchen flat roof and grow a lot of my fruit and veg. My 3(about to be 4) children all love planting, and growing and eating what we grow. I don't use slug pellets ()instead I use slog gone) and plant more than I need to account for pests etc. I look to chop and drop weeds and share any glut of produce withe the local community via local churches. I'd be glad to hear if there were other permies users close to me.
