About our family

Applewood is the home of our 2 daughters, Shanti (22) and Teya (15). They are both on their  own journey with permaculture, Cultural Emergence and deep nature connection.

We encourage them to come and learn with us at times, as we obviously feel it is valuable for them to learn these skills. They will  join us for morning circles, meal times and round the fires in the evenings and the occasional session, to enjoy and benefit from the temporary communities that come together on courses. Through their involvement, they give the participants a feel of family life and a multi-generational village. 

Shanti has participated in the Youth in Permaculture programme, with over 50 people from across Europe.

Teya is deeply into connecting with animals, and is a fully fledged animal lover.
