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!
Buildings: 9 smallholding plots each now with temporary or permanent self-built homes
Location: North Pembrokeshire
Main Features: Each home has been individually designed and built by their owner. The site itself provides building materials, 75% of residents' livelihoods and 100% of their water and electricity via a reconditioned 25KW hydroelectricity generator. The site hosts regular courses, volunteers and weekly tours.
Awards: £500k awarded in 2009 by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change for the construction of the Community Hub
