This site provides information on the permaculture holding, Tir Penrhos Isaf, near Dolgellau in Gwyedd, Cymru (Wales) which I share with my wife, Lyn. We have been working at Penrhos (or Benthros, as it is known locally) since 1986 and been living here since February 1992 when we gained temporary planning permission from the Snowdonia National Park. Over that time we have continued to develop our permaculture design for the holding through the practical application of the ethics and principles of permaculture.

Some legal stuff


This work has been (and still is) both hugely rewarding and incredibly challenging. We feel we have learned an enormous amount, some of which is purely information based and can be passed on through these pages. Other things we have learned are better taught so we also run courses and visits. Details can be found by following the links.

I have kept the site deliberately simple, concentrating on the information.

We hope you find this stuff useful.


About the site

I have concentrated on providing information and experiences which I believe may be useful to others who are interested in, or actively practicing permaculture design, such as some of my design work, past projects, articles, handouts and resources relevant to teachers of permaculture design. I have not gone for any especially flashy stuff although there are some nice images.
