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

Today could be the day….

….that we build our dome!

It has been a mammoth task but all the triangle have been made, covered in plastic and assembled into hexagon and pentagon panels. The base is level and round and the weather looks like it will hold until tea time.

Hopefully the next time I write in this blog I will have a fully built dome on my allotment.

This is how it looks now

Ground Zero

Ignore all the upright stakes these are just to hold the base in place until I put the steel anchors in this morning.

Wish me luck.

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.
