What’s it like to do permaculture in icy climates? Quite different from anything we have here in Australia? There seems to be a growing movement of permaculture in Iceland, and this is where the Nordic Festival of Permaculture is happening this July.
A new permaculture farm in Iceland, T.frasta©£ir, aims to become the permaculture school for cold climates. It has been offering PDCs since 2015, with the first one led by Robyn Frances and Albert Bates.
T.frasta©£ir is starting to grow food for their local community and keenly working with animals, particularly chickens. Through their program of courses and workshops they are showing others how to permaculture in cold climates too.
