Nick Baker visits a small community in Devon which is practising permaculture, a holistic sustainable approach to farming.
For this week's On Your Farm, Naturalist Nick Baker visits 42 acres of woods and fields, where a small community is pioneering a system which aims to produce its own food while living in harmony with nature. The landmatters project near Totnes in Devon has been given five years planning permission by the Government to practice permaculture on the land. Permaculture has been operating in the UK for the last 30 years and it's popularity is growing. With the threat of climate change and global warming, Nick Baker investigates whether this way of living could could be a solution for the future?
