The Harmony Farm Project
A community farm made with love
What is The Harmony Farm Project?
The Harmony Farm Project is a permaculture lifestyle farm which is community led bringing health & wellness of a broad spectrum to the lives of those who engage with it.
What is permaculture ?
“The aim is to create systems that are ecologically-sound and economically viable, which provide for their own needs, do not exploit or pollute, and are therefore sustainable in the long term."
"Permaculture uses the inherent qualities of plants and animals combined with the natural characteristics of landscapes and structures to produce a life-supporting system for city and country, using the smallest practical area.
Bill Mollison (1978)
We believe that reconnecting people with nature and food will promote the conscious shift to mindful living we all need to engage with.
To be a leading polyculture farm in the UK, setting the new standards for this style of farming which not only stands to educate our community and create an environment of wellness and creativity. But to also create a blueprint that indicates the clear positive economic benefits a farm like this can have in its local area.
What is the aim of The Harmony Farm Project?
The aim of the harmony farm project is to transform once traditionally farmed landscape into a vibrant polyculture for people to access; education, nature, food services, mental health services and a sense of community. Not only is the aim to provide this for our resident community but for this lifestyle to open up to the reaches of the country offering educational retreats for families far and wide.
Why are we called The Harmony Farm Project?
The name illustrates our intention, to live and work in harmony with the land. To no longer stand aside and be apart of the mass exploitations of the planet but to stand up, be seen & be heard and pave a way for others to follow.
Who we are
A community of passionate individuals with a shared vision to promote conscious mindful living in the local community and share this learning far and wide. We are made up of Musicians, architects, farmers, volunteers, polyculture experts, and dreamers - we are based in Perranporth, Cornwall come and join the revolution.
How we do it
We farm in tandem with all the land to provide education and escape; from health and wellness retreats (yoga, meditation, sound healing), peaceful picnics with the family, walks along the enchanted edible meadows to getting wild and mucky learning how to grow delicious organic food and feed the resident pest control (chicken, duck, goat and pigs etc).
Why is there a need for this project ?
There is a growing need for the entirety of the human race to step up and make decisive action toward reversing and stabilising the delicate equilibrium of our planet’s ecosystem.
This has been proven time after time not to be coming from the top down, so we at a grass roots level must take control and set the precedence for a brighter future. We aim to add to the mounting evidence that a well designed section of land can grow enough food year round to support a given number of people.
Therefore, empowering communities to mindfully grow organic produce which is importantly cheaper and healthier for the consumer, opposed to mass produced “ready meals” which are a root cause to so many of this country's problems to date.
With engagement into mindful living we will see a domino effect which will tumble far and wide into other areas of life for the active members of the harmony farm, provoking self reflection on how they can make small but tremendous changes in the little things.
“We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breaker,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World losers and world forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.”
-William Edger O’shaughnessy
