Francine has been actively involved in permaculture since 1980 and in the past 7 years this has been on her 160-acre property. Here she has completed earthworks with swales and dams to capture water and built gardens and sea container housing including integrating recycled earthship methods. Much time has been spent rehabilitating this overgrazed property with the help of livestock and it has now become a nice property.
Fran is a PDC (Permaculture Design Certificate) Teacher and plans to run workshops from her property once the camping area is completed. She is also experienced in building rammed earth houses, stone houses, log houses and using earthship methods.
