Friendly reminder: book early for Melliodora tours

On the first day of September the new season of public tours at Melliodora opened for 2013/14.
In the morning David Holmgren and Su Dennett took the full house of enthusiastically curious visitors through their house. They showed some of the principles behind passive solar house design as well as examples of practical applications at work.
Taking advantage of fine mild spring weather, the visitors walked through the famed farm garden system at Melliodora, observing the plants and animals, landscape and garden farming setups and designs. Along the way, they saw many  practical applications of permaculture principles. Our season openers were enjoyed by all of us here at Melliodora, and by all reports the visitors did as well.
Our next tours are on Sunday October 6th. As with the September tours, they are very popular. Remember to book early at our online shop, to secure your place and avoid missing out.
