About Deano Martin

I'm a Permaculturist/Smallholder implementing my own design on 3.75 acres of grassland in the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Although I've led an Introduction to Permaculture Course, at the University of Lincolnshire, I have no desire to be a teacher, or to design for a living.
My Smallholding is perhaps unusual in that the primary function of almost everything that I plant is bee forage, and that every element in the design, and almost every individual plant has to support my bees.
I am hoping to become one of the UK Permaculture Association LAND Demonstration Projects.
I write about my work, on my blog, The Sustainable Smallholding.
Where there are also details of my design.


Experimental Polyculture

I am trying a hybrid of the Three Sisters Planting Guild, and the Bon fils Method of growing grains, and am looking for anybody else doing a similar experiment.

You cannot have enough Bamboo

The highlight of the last week has been adding another six varieties of Bamboo to my growing collection. I only went for four, but couldn't resist adding two more.
