We continue to improve the biodiversity of our smallholding and reuse materials already on site in the landscaping around the steading and cottages.
All the dry stone walls have been built from sandstone recovered from the derelict farmhouse we demolished to make way for our house, whilst the raised beds in our vegetable and fruit garden are made from the old floor joists and are filled with composted green waste!
In the fields we continue to plant native trees and have restored an old hedgerow which forms our southern boundary, whilst the field excavated in front of the cottages to install the heat pump collector was restored and re-seeded with a mix of clover and grass to encourage a wide range of insects, in particular bees.
