The Naturally Vegan Plot is committed to research, demonstration, dissemination of information, education and practical implementation of vegan organic / veganic horticulture, woodland gardening, low impact land management initiatives, vegan permaculture.

‘The Plot’ is 3.5 acres, nestled in the rolling hills of the Tamar Valley, where we utilise methods of sustainable land use and principles which closely emulate natural perennial planting systems in order to create a holistic and harmonious environment which invites, welcomes and sustains wildlife. We will neither 'use' any captive animals nor anything derived from their exploitation.

Our aims are to develop large areas of woodland gardens, WET Systems, a natural swimming pool, edible ponds and bog gardens, demonstration gardens, consultations, a market garden with produce sales and a plant nursery.

Our objectives are to involve people and share the experience wherever possible which involves courses and workshops, field trips, volunteers work parties, tours and presentations.

The Naturally Vegan Plot have volunteers, qualified tutors, customers for produce and the experience and motivation to make things happen, we simply need some available funds to get things that we need to enable us to move forward with immediate effect, including -

* We need fencing materials to protect the 400 plus trees we will be planting over the next month or so

* With buyers lined up for produce we need to purchase vegetable plugs

* Initially we would like to import a large amount of compost from a local green waste recycling company for use in propagation and soil improvement 

Risks and challenges

Challenges we might face could be hold ups to land based activities due to unpredictable weather, damage to crops due to weather and / or wildlife.

We are fairly dependent on the help of volunteers to plant trees and fruit and vegetables plants, however without the help of volunteers work will simply progress at a slower pace.

Fortunately The Naturally Vegan Plot will benefit various sources of income, including but not limited to: -

1. Edible and otherwise useful products from the woodland garden and perennial plantings

2. Vegetable crops and fruit crops

3. Plants sales

4. Courses, workshops and field trips

We are fortunate because our potential sources of income are more diverse than the obstacles we may encounter
