Helen and Stuart Kearney live at Elder Farm, a five and a half acre organic farm in Devon which is part of the Ecological Land Co-operative's first site in the UK. They have a background in permaculture, cooperatives, organic growing and outdoor education. Helen is a medical herbalist with practices in two nearby towns. They use their plot to grow herbs to make into medicines, soap and other herbal products, and edible and cut flowers.
Elder Farm is a small off grid medicinal herb farm, which is being established using permaculture principles. We offer a range of learning opportunities for visitors from the UK and abroad. Our goal is to reconnect people to sustainable growing methods, and to the amazing healing power of plants.
