Gelli Y Gafel an off grid small holding rooted in Pembrokeshire, West Wales.
We are in the process of transforming two pasture fields into bio-diverse and multifunctional ecosystems, designed to provide food and timber in a sustainable manner.
Our land comprises of areas for annual and perennial crops, soft fruit production, forest garden, timber and coppice, plant raising, wild areas and ponds.
We aim to provide for our needs whilst enhancing the fertility and biodiversity of the land. We use permaculture principles and observations from nature in our design in order to create a self supporting system tailored towards providing edible crops, medicines, useful timber and craft materials.
Here’s a video about the planning policy under which we have permission, which has some nice shots of our project.
