Regional base map

My side of the family live in south east England. My partner, Tilo’s family live in Germany. We met in Germany, lived there for eight years, moved to England for four, then back to Germany for one year, then finally settled on England. This has meant that we have often travelled between the two countries several times a year, often by plane. Tired of travelling and unable to justify long journeys for short trips, recently we have aimed to travel less frequently between the two countries and do longer journeys by train. The regional base map shows the main connection points for more frequent travel. We travel to my parents and brother a few times a month. To school every day. Over to Brighton for Brighton Permaculture courses more and more frequently! However in terms of our food needs, our prime directive is local, organic food.


Food sources visited every weekday

  • we source our greens from Michael Hall Garden Shop, this is located at school the boys currently attend, Michael Hall School
  • on the way to and from school, we have an amazing biodynamic farm, Plaw Hatch, which produces raw milk, cheese and vegetables offered in their farm shop amongst other things
