Edibles is a permaculture smallholding in the Colne Valley, South Pennines. Rosie and Steve took on the site in 2003, renovated the barn into their house, and started to grow fruit and veg. We have forest gardens, wildflower meadows, polytunnels, allotment scale veg growing, field scale veg production, cob oven and the wonderful converted Cowshed to host meetings, events and gigs.
Permaculture has provided a useful design framework within which Edibles continues to evolve. We draw on the 3 permaculture ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Shares.
