Landmatters Permaculture Community
Landmatters is a rural permaculture co-operative in South Devon, living on 42 acres of pasture and semi-natural ancient woodland, with some naturally regenerating scrub and ancient hedgerows.
The land is stewarded by 11 adults and 7 children living in low-impact structures, mostly benders and yurts, and is totally off-grid. We grow some food (hope to grow more!), keep goats, hens and ducks, manage the woodlands, work communally, run educational events, car share, and use consensus decision-making and Way of Council, with the aim of creating a thriving, ecological community. We are a Permaculture Association LAND demonstration site and a member of the WWOOF network. Visitor accommodation is usually camping with use of the communal kitchen. We’re looking forward to celebrating our 10th anniversary this May, and have spaces for new members to join us. For more info check out www.landmatters.org.uk
