Ben's passion for permaculture living led him to live semi-outdoors for over ten years before obtaining planning permission to build a permanent woodland house in his beloved Prickly Nut Woods during 2002/3. UK's Channel 4 Grand Designs programme charted the construction of Ben's beautiful woodland house and propelled Ben from a humble woodsman to something of a celebrity (his house voted the most popular by viewers and Ben hand-cutting 12,000 wooden roof tiles probably helped).
Ben is winning. He is thriving and doing what he loves; creating a world he wants to see, a world with some hope for the next generation. Ben has become part of the permaculture campfire mythology. Listen to Ben's inspiration and compelling account of his winning journey.
