Hi all,

I'm new to the forum - have been researching Permaculture for the last year or two and safe to say I'm a convert. I have a huge interest in farming and hope to start a permaculture farm someday in the future.

Are there many people here from Ireland?

Bealtaine Cottage <---website, is a permaculture site in Ireland.  I don't know if she gives tours or not, but she has lots of videos of her place on her youtube channel at, Bealtaine Cottage <---youtube  She's been working on her place, on her own, for 13 years now.  And has made a significant improvement to her property.  It's therapy just to look through all her photos and videos and seeing all the green.  It looks like her website has changed since I last looked through it, but somewhere you will find some before photos when she first purchased it and it was just a lot.

Hi there! I'm in the North! Been studying Permaculture for  5 or 6 years now and have taken a year at the end of uni to wwoof round Norway and Ireland to try to decide where to buy land in the next few years.
Brexit could make a big difference what side of the border I settle on and I want to see the lie of the land before I commit.
So glad to see some non US based chat on here!

Also look up laken cottage farm
It may be worth paying for a membership to wwoof Ireland and looking at all the links to all the websites of people's farms on there?

Hi, I'm staying in Cork for 10 days over Christmas and am looking for permie places to visit. Either centres to visit /join in with tasks or just cracking good heartwarming invigorating awe-inspiring places that will help me celebrate all things good.
Any recommendations?
