I live in southern England, and so have grown up amongst damp, green forests. I feel most at home among these trees. So much so that l plan to one day buy some forest land somewhere in the UK or Northern Europe. There I would like to build myself a timber framed farmstead, to live off the land and in harmony with nature.
My passions are nature conservation and archaeology. I love making things inspired by archaeology such as carving wooden bowls or sewing leather moccasins/shoes. I am also interested in ancient land stewardship practices like coppicing and meadow regeneration. I studied conservation at university and I am currently working as a shipwright on a project to reconstruct an Anglo-Saxon longship.
Building a forest farmstead could unite these two passions. I dream of regenerating forest and meadow land, keeping animals, growing crops, and practicing crafts inspired by archaeology like blacksmithing, woodcarving and traditional building.
I am looking for a woman with a similar outlook, so that we can share our ideas, experiences and passions and create a dream together.
If this resonates with you, or you’d just like to talk about permaculture things, send me a message. I’d love to hear from you.
