Family want an ecohome in Herefordshire
A family wanting to live in touch with Mother Nature is appealing to landowners for help.
Kirsten and Mark Hopkins, from Yorkshire, have never settled in one place as their jobs as outdoor pursuits instructors see them constantly moving around the country.
But their three-year-old daughter, Megan, has been accepted into the Steiner Academy in Much Dewchurch and they now want to stay put until she finishes school.
Kirsten said their dream is to live in an eco-pod – a house with green credentials that uses solar panels, rain butts, heating coils and wind turbines to sustain itself.
They are appealing for anyone with an acre of land to get in touch.
The pod would require planning permission from Herefordshire Council.
Anyone interested in letting their land to the Hopkins family can call 07830 310380 or 01248 601126.
