Lammas is a pioneering eco-village located in Pembs, Wales, where all homes are integrated into smallholdings, providing 100% of its energy, water and waste services and the vast majority of residents’ food and incomes.
Lammas was co-founded by Bright Green Futures’ director Larch Maxey in 2005 and is an independent, ground breaking project, inspiring and guiding others throughout Wales and the world! As you can see from the pictures, Lammas is very low-impact, highly affordable and highly sustainable!
