Graham headshotWe live in interesting times.

Britons of my era share the experience of having seen vast changes in technology, culture and language in our own lifetimes.  The world of work has also been transformed.

Alongside the increasing domination of the world by our largest technocracies, we have also witnessed a growing awareness that social and environmental concerns are also supremely important.  I am also aware that health, wealth and happiness are not equally shared out around the world.

This website brings together my thoughts, words and deeds as we work to address these issues and offer practical solutions through working in business and with the land.

You can read an interview here which sheds more light on who I am and how I think

  1. I personally was researching for recommendations for my personal blog site
    and found your blog post, “Graham Bell, changing
    the world one day at a time”, would you care in the event
    that I actually employ a bit of of your ideas? Thanks a lot -Jocelyn

  2. I actually speculate why you branded this particular article,
    “Graham Bell, changing the world one day at a time”.
    Regardless I personally admired the blog!Thanks a lot,

  3. “Graham Bell, changing the world one day at a time” was honestly enjoyable and beneficial!
    In the present day universe honestly, that is quite hard to accomplish.
    Thank you, Norris

  4. Your place looks amazing! I am currently having serious withdrawal symptoms since moving to a lovely new build in Coldstream with a small blank canvas, yet to be gdn landscaped, compared to previous gdns where I grew plums,apples and veggies and entertained all sorts of birds and wildlife. Also miss my previous wk, role at Ridley hall, Bardon Mill where I worked for a horticultural service for adults with Learning Disabilities -a-sowing and a-digging. I am busy, busy, busy but wonder if you have any ops for volunteers or just a chance to look around and gain some ideas? Regards, Eileen.

  5. Hello dear Sir

    I visit your website and it’s so nice site about plants. I contact you from Iran and need some Oxlalis tetraphila bulbs, but I cant pay money from my country.
    would you please send me some tetraphilla bulbs and I send you somethings from here instead money?? is this possible?


  6. November 1, 2012I have been an organic framer for many years and keen to see what permaculture can also offer. I live in a 300-350 mill rainfall area so things are a bit different to the higher rainfall country many of you live in.sheep, chooks, vegies, some crop for hay but mostly just what comes from non-chemical farming over many years.

  7. Good to hear from you. We all have to work with the particular challenges that life throws at us- resources or lack of them, climate and weather, location, friends and family. There is much we can learn from each other in how we deal with these issues. As peak carbon approaches we will become more and more dependent on smaller scale producers, so God bless those who try!

  8. I take pride in my work and hobby, its clrar that you do along with your educational site post.
    I was blessed to finmd it here. So Ican find myy way back here, thanks for posting this
    info and I’ve saved the website!

  9. Hi Graham I came across an article about you in Geoffs Lawtons friday additions. I did a course on line with him in 2015 so I am a new Permaculturist. I decided to turn to permaculture just befor I completed my horticulture part 2 and garden design certificate.
    I do keep in touch with various people on line but you will be the only one on the same continent. This year I have managed to change my vegetable gardening to permaculture. I built a hugulculture bed at the end of 2014 and it is in use this year.
    My garden once belonged to a famous plants man Graham stewart Thomas. He created a ground cover system that still exist to this day. I use to marvel at the thick layers of mulch in the woods and the spring bulbs would pop up every year. I decided I would like to change the system to growing vegetable and fruit and keep myself and the wonderful birds that visit my garden happy. I enjoyed reading what you had to say and to know that you have used the system for so long. I also grow mushroom and collect wild ones.
    All the best Florie

  10. Just found my way here through Geoff Lawton’s blogs. Inspiring for me. Having moved to the countryside in south west Scotland, I’ve been starting to design a perma veg garden, but all info was from other countries, very different climates. I lived near Edinburgh previously and amazed at how the climate differs here. The plot is a wee microclimate of its own too, so getting to know it.
    First lesson, you can’t layer & cover over years of neglected elder, it loves this feed! So, how do I employ a ‘no dig’ policy on elder and nettles? I think I may need to employ you to advise on very neglected the plot with no worms or ladybirds, just plenty slug and frogs, which the chooks are loving!

  11. Sounds great Florie. I will be teaching at Geoff’s place in New South Wales this October. Just wondering where abouts you are?
