Applewood Permaculture Centre

Waterloo Farm, Orleton Common, Orleton, Ludlow SY8 4JG
Applewood is a 20 acre smallholding in the beautiful hills of North Herefordshire. The owners, Designed Visions partners Chris Evans and Looby Macnamara, are developing a low-impact permaculture demonstration and training centre. They feel that with permaculture, you need to see it to believe it, and then need to be able to learn it, and then acquire the resources (seeds, plants, books, friends and networks) to do it!

The site includes woods, pasture, a lake, kitchen garden and an orchard of heritage apples. These diverse habitats make for an incredible wildlife and people sanctuary. A converted barn and outbuildings provide indoor accommodation and the grounds a peaceful campsite.

For those who are especially interested, Applewood Permaculture Centre offers an extra emphasis on social permaculture.
