So whats new with your goat ?
Oops, i've not been there fo a long time, i guess the alert was not working
the dryness didn't affect us because we were not already on the property
for now, its all rain and cold, weird year.
it's starting very slowly here, we focus on the house for now
Yes we had it 'fresh' in July, i couldn't say cold, however it has been very hot since....a bumper year for fruit and veg. anyone fancy some quince???!
saskia sorry to hear about the goat.....we have a semi nain and she's easy to handle. after trying almost everything with her, I find the easiest way to hold her is tethering with a rope onto a dog collar around her neckand then tie her to whatever is close, so I move her where I want her to be. she is an escape artist, but this has almost been foolproof !

My partner and I, as well as our amazing permaculture expert friend are moving to near Carcassonne in September 2012 to explore the different regions and help on permaculture projects before buying land. We are looking to buy 10 acres minimum for 2 homes, orchard, land for cultivation and permaculture design and in the future look to build a green school/Steiner based school and "slow" retreat centre encouraging people to slow down - yoga, meditation, harvesting their own veggies from the garden to cook communally, no internet or phone during their stay. We currently run www.evolvewellnesscentre.com in London which has a strong focus on sustainability education. We planted a roof garden on our studio using permaculture principles last April.
We are looking to help support like minded people with their land/work on their house in exchange for lodging and board. Please get in touch if you know of any such opportunities or are looking to network with good people from a similar perspective. We would love to hear from you.
Adrian, Corinne and Kevin
