About francine chanover

I ve been involved in permaculture since my 20s in some expression or another. Ive always been organic and planted companion planting. Ive also always wanted my own 100 plus acres which Ive now been privileged enough to be living on the property by 2012..Presently Ive managed to go there a few times and set up a sea container comfy place with solar and wind power. so um a tenth of the way there lol. lots still to do.

I speak french, am trying to learn thai and have built out of mudbrick, rammed earh, stone, sea containers, glass bottles too.
Ive learnt everything through trial and error not through courses.Mainly learning from others and practice.. as they say practice and knowledge handed down , can make a big difference,

We are WWoofing hosts also .

I have no qualms in setting the farm up as a community , one with likeminded people who all help each other and work together equally.

The floods and torrential rains recently damaged and washed away the main access road

As it is the only road access to the top of the hill I have devised a plan

Putting up wind generator number 1

The aim is to use only wind, solar and other alternative power to generate the whole farm and everything used on it
