About us and our permaculture homestead

Beyond Buckthorns is a permaculture homestead and education centre. In the past years, we have worked on the old log house and its three-hectare plot in accordance with the principles of permaculture. Close to our hearts are e.g. fairness, producing your own food (especially different fruit trees, herbs and annual vegetables and conserving food), biogas, sustainable and ecological living and renovation of an old house and all kinds of experimentation!
