"Ragmans Farm matters. Hugely. It has developed over the years into a unique resource, a unique teaching venue, and a unique 'living classroom' for those who want to learn about permaculture and sustainable land use.
In these times of climate change, resource depletion and economic downturn, Ragmans offers a model for a different approach for rural communities, one based on diversity, entrepreneurship, reskilling and a reconnection to land.
Over the past 15 years, Ragmans has led by example, working hard, trying new things and experimenting. Not everything has worked, but this is the vital niche that the pioneer fills, and we owe them a huge debt of gratitude. The future will have much to learn from Ragmans, and much to thank it for".
