It has finally happened..Carmarthenshire County Cancel has granted us full planning permission for our One Planet Development. That means that we now have permission to build our home and workshop in our woods. We will be building a small log cabin to live in that will be made from some of the wood on-site. The cabin will be heated using a wood burner and all of the wood to keep us warm will come from our own woodland.
The garden will supply us with our food and we will be using the project to find out how sustainable our vegan and gluten free diet is in the UK. We hope to be able to grow the majority of our food needs on the land and also experiment with alternative crops for items such as cashews and dates. We will also be growing a large supply of yacon tubers to be able to grow all of our own syrup and supply our chocolates with sustainable plant syrup grown in Wales….Chocolate grown in Wales!!
We bought the land about two and half years ago and we have spent the last two years observing the land and writing our planning application. We submitted our planning application last May and finally got our planning permission approved this January.
If anyone is thinking about unplugging from their current life and plugging into their dreams my advice would be…DO IT NOW!!!
You can have everything you dream of, take the risk and watch your whole life fall into place ♥
