Ludwig Appeltans and Suzanne de Waard of Earth Ways turned out to be fairly close neighbours to Teeny Weeny Farm in Forres where I was staying in September 2016. I’d followed Ludwig on Facebook for some time and was therefore happy to be invited over to see their place! It became clear that their hearts weren’t fully into their piece of land due to “circumstances” and that they were looking for somewhere new to really develop their ideas and run permaculture courses. It turned out that they had a secret as plans were already advanced and a few weeks later they would be moving to the Rubha Phoil Forest Gardens, on Skye (Armadale within walking distance of the Mallaig ferry!), a big loss for Forres….. I wish them good luck and hope to visit them there in the next couple of years (I have a special relationship with Skye and the Inner Hebrides from the time I lived in Scotland)!
I wish I’d taken notes on the day as I’ve forgotten some of the details…hopefully Ludwig Appeltans will add some comments to the pictures
