Water has been our biggest challenge since the farm is in a dryland environment in the Little-Karoo near Ladismith in the Western Cape, South Africa. Over time we have established a wide range of water harvesting earthworks from swales and berms to keylines, that service our dam. To our great detriment, the Kny river that is our major water source, has been cut off upstream and we are now in dire need of funding for a borehole to ensure our survival and ongoing training. The funds raised will be used for the drilling of the borehole and infrastructural developments needed to facilitate it. It will also include piping and access to the drilling site.

About Permaculture:
Permaculture design applies the principles that ecosystems use to create ecological human habitats. The term permaculture combines the word permanent and culture / agriculture. This means that our habitat design leads to regeneration and longevity. Permaculture also brings about environmental, social and economic justice.

Our Courses:
Our Permaculture Design Courses (PDC’s) teach essential skills to meet the challenges of a world beset with climate change, economic uncertainty, social injustice, and diminishing natural resources. The PDC teaches us how to design regenerative human living environments in a way that is beneficial to everything and everyone that surround it. Our PDC’s change lives and set learners on a pathway towards health, abundance, personal freedom and economic well-being without compromising the earth or ecological ethics. 
Our other courses enable people to contribute to positive change in the world, by training in earth building, natural medicine, organic practice, wilderness transformation and more. We also host volunteers, interns, tours.
