For several years, Patch of the Planet ran a garden design and training business, with a focus on designing beautiful gardens that work in harmony with nature and that tread lightly on the Earth. Many gardens later, and with a legacy of habitat patches, nature ponds and wildlife food sources integrated in to gardens across North-West England, Patch of the Planet is taking on a new guise.
After over a decade of planning, from Summer 2021 Patch of the Planet will be the name of our new self-sufficiency smallholding project in Pembrokeshire. This Patch of the Planet is nestled on the foothills of the Preseli hills in mid-Pembrokeshire, with beautiful views, a wealth of neolithic history surrounding it, the stunning, raw beauty rural Pembrokeshire all around and the famous coast and beaches just 25 minutes away.
We'll be offering eco camping and a cosy holiday annexe for those that would like a get away. And we'll be running courses and events themed around our connection with the natural world. We ourselves will be living from the land, treading as lightly as we can on this particular patch of the planet. It's a work in progress, so watch this space. You can find out a little more here.
For our existing clients, our garden design work will continue with enthusiasm through to completion by Summer 2021. We are however unable to take on any more design or implementation work in gardens.
