WINTER ROOM

The ‘Winter Room’ will be a space where we can be warm and dry if the weather is very bad. All the materials used are recycled, without cost. First we chose an open space, with nice views.

Next we made a base for the floor with large wooden pallets, supported underneath by slabs

Broken pallets are reinforced by using discarded off cuts

This is followed by a second layer of pallets

WILD FOOD

David is a local friend from Oxfordshire. He is an expert in the English Countryside. He taught me how to grow vegetables, forage, and hunt. His greatest passion in life is Nature and I continue to learn from him everyday. This summer we collected mushrooms, dandelions, nettles, berries, fruit and nuts. Last winter David showed us how to hunt pheasant, rabbits and deer. We often cook wild food together. To learn how to live off the land, contact: info@fallinginlovewithlove.co.uk

ECO BUILDING

First I collect wooden pallets and other recyclable materials, which have been thrown away or left for me by local businesses.

10689900_832324120134972_3569252264857762856_n

I then take the materials to the farm, where they can be imaginatively used for building temporary structures (like giant lego).

It is not necessary to use nails, screws, cement or anything permanent. These structures can be moved, modified or demolished at any time.

Recycled materials can be used to make weather proof buildings, furniture, book shelves etc. Hay and straw make free and effective cushioning for seating,
