Carl Legge is a self taught cook, forager and home brewer. He lives with his wife Debs on a smallholding on the Llŷn Peninsula in North Wales. Carl says, “We’re trying to manage our holding along Permaculture lines. Permaculture is a way to think about, design and use your environment so it is resilient and sustainable. We’re not completely self sufficient, but we aim at ‘optimum sufficiency’ given our land, time and energy resources…. We keep chickens and in the past have kept geese, ducks, turkeys and pigs.” He is the author of The Permaculture Kitchen.
