Episode 39: Life Goes On

The residents at Lammas ecovillage in West Wales have a commitment as part of their planning permission to get 75% of their basic needs from the land.

This is because the planning permission expects the community to have a land-based livelihood, with minimal travelling to jobs offsite. All the residents are collecting wood for fuel, growing vegetables and raising some animals for eggs or meat. For this, they have greenhouses and barns to build, as well as their own homes.
