Permaculture by another name

This article looks at a smallholding in Wales in the United Kingdom that is successful in producing an abundance of a wide variety of crops from a relatively small piece of land. How do they do it? Well, by using cultivation techniques that are firmly within the permaculture framework.

Namely, these are promoting biodiversity with lots of different crop plants, working in accordance with nature rather than against it, and selling surplus produce locally rather than shipping it a long way. The farmer may not call it permaculture, but his example is certainly inspiring to all “permies” and potential smallholders.
