Every now and again, a spammer, manages to become a member. The first one in almost a year, convinced us she was a friend from Argentina. Actually it turned out she was from Senegal! Thanks to Geoff, whom she contacted via comments, we discovered her and gave her the order of the boot. Spammers are the reason for approving the blogs and photo's, so please add whenever you wish and we'll get them up.
Happy building. Happy planting.

It's been a busy year, so busy that we've not had much time to add blogs to the community, anyway, here I am with news. Last November we began receiving volunteers from the workaway program, an international web community of volunteers and over seventy people turned up in the course of the next…Continue

Hi all, I was pleasantly surprised to see that someone had posted a reply to my blog on this site, but when I went to view it, well it turned out to be uselessly vague, had no questions related to my description and the poster had no website listed on their profile yet their post included a email address @live.com which appears to be a free microsoft email. And yet something "important" to tell/share with me. Happy to share what I know with anyone who actually reads my description and shares…Continue
This map, lovingly drawn by Konomi, shows the work that has been done on our land over the last four years. We consider things 80% complete and things to be done over the next year include the completion of our guest house, a covered walkway/kitchen space to the greenhouses (which we are presently working on) and the completion of a bathing area complete with hot tub fired by a rocket stove that will use the twigs and branches which we can now coppice fron the bushes that have grown all over…Continue

EN/ES/ Konomi harvested ten kilos of potatoes from one of our Hugelkultur gardens. It's was a nice harvest of four varieties, three very rare which originate from the island of Chiloe, the large island that sits just off the coast of Chilean Patagonia. Chiloe is known as one of the homes of the potato, along with Peru and they are delicious. One day we'll make a special trip to Chiloe in search of many more varieties.

Back in 2009 when we arrived in Patagonia to build on the land we bought two years earlier, we first ordered 1000 used polypropylene feed & fertilizer bags to aid in the construction process. The bags had been recollected by the distributors from the farmers they had sold them to, after the said farmers had used their contents. They were of varying sizes and quality, many were laminated, some were not.
As is usual for products delivered to Patagonia, the way in…Continue

We've been busy, building paths, creating the gardens and most recently deeply embedded in the world of fairy tales that I have been creating for years and are now in the process of turning them into a series of E Books . Each story is illustrated,…Continue
