Wolds Woodland Farming Project

Project Type

Rural, Residential, Demonstration, Educational

Project Summary

A 3.75 acre (1.5 Hectare) Smallholding, that we are currently converting to trees. The project includes a one+ acre Forest Garden, Coppice, Orchard, Annual Vegetable growing. Most important of all, I keep Bees.

Project Description

Set in Lincolnshire, England, in the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Wolds Woodland Farming Project is a Sustainable Smallholding, being redesigned using Permaculture Primciples.

Beekeeping is at the centre of what we do, so that every element in the design, and almost every plant, has to be capable of providing bee forage. This adds one more function to every element. In addition, the planting scheme is 'zoned' with the bees in mind, concentrating on providing bee forage during the times when flying is most difficult, or nectar producing plants are in short supply.

As of now (February 2011), all of the bulk tree planting is complete, and we are turning our attention to food production trees, and the composition of the lower layers.

There is still plenty of work to do, and it will be a few years before we are truly maintaining the system, as opposed to creating it.

We are waiting to hear if we are going to be one of the UK Permaculture Association, Demonstartion sites (LAND Project).



Officially a Demonstration Site

As of the beginning of the month, we are part of the Permaculture Association (UK) LAND Project

Indicator Plants for Bees

The Concept of using plants to tell us about soil conditions is well established in Permaculture, but they can also give us information about other things, including bees.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

Permaculture Matchmaker

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.


PDC Teacher

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
