Vic Button ~ Self Sufficient/Reliant Sharing Communities # Flat Earth
Let meTake you for a walk around the ‘Creating Welhealth’ Forest Garden Project at Hafod-Y-Llan Ganol near the Alwyn Reservoir, North Wales. The idea is to work towards being self sufficient by giving and taking/sharing food and skills – the forest garden itself is envisaged to eventually yield many products needed for living. The house is ‘completely off the grid’ with electric from solar panels and wind generators, has its own water supply from a spring/roof collection, growing food organically, using the low maintenance ‘no dig’ mulching method as set out in Ken Fern’s book ‘Plants For a Future’, and has a vegan-organic ethos. ‘Welhealth’ is about in reducing down your need for money through sharing skills and goods (give and take) and the idea of a culture of self relient communities as promoted by Gandhi.
