About Us

We discovered permaculture in 2009 whilst on the steering group of a local transition town group. We continued to developed our knowledge and in 2011 became the stewards of Wishtree, a 5 acre deciduous woodland in North Devon. It became a land learner, permaculture demonstration project in 2014 and our off-grid home in 2015. 

 

We spent 5 years demonstrating how to live off-grid, building resilience and doing outreach work with the surrounding communities, teaching permaculture. We also developed Wishtree, to be a LAND learner permaculture project, demonstrating several examples of how forest gardening can be used in different land based systems, from a residential garden to a 5 acre smallholding.

Wishtree was home to North Devon Permaculture CIC, the previous name of our social enterprise. In 2020, due to the effects of COVID on the business and a death in the family, we had to give up our off-grid life at Wishtree and in Devon, moving location and renaming ourselves to Wyld Edges. Our aim was to adapt to change and continue the work we had been doing.

What We Do

We teach permaculture design and how it can be used in gardening, your home and work life. We introduce you to techniques and methods used in the permaculture design process and the benefits for physical and mental wellbeing and the environment.

Using Culture Capital, we promote collaboration by working with schools, community groups and businesses to design and build strong, resilient communities, helping to promote effective communication.

 

We are advocates for stopping the stigma of mental ill-health and speak openly about our experiences and how we use permaculture design for emotional resilience.
