Growing as much food on as little land for as little money as possible

Pond update

Leave a comment

Sculpted the pond a little more today with the depth spiralling down around the island to the deepest part which is about a metre deep.

Also had a play with the subsoil to see if it will be waterproof. I sieved the soil and then mixed it with water to form a clay which could be smoothed onto the surface of the pond.

It looked promising but it is going to be a lot of work

Dedicated to living a simple, independent, self reliant life where money is not the main factor. My dream is to engineer a life that requires very little from the outside world. I would like to provide my own shelter, collect my own water, grow, catch, hunt, forage my own food, create my own energy and deal with my own waste. This dream all starts in a tiny allotment in Cornwall where I will be experimenting in growing food, generating energy and dealing with waste.
