About Susan and James
We are James Hardiman and Susan Courtney, husband and wife team currently living in Eastleigh, Hampshire, UK, with our five chickens, six goldfish, and our small permaculture garden.
We are also fond parents and even fonder (sorry, kids) grandparents.
We were visiting the green Fab Lab at Valldaura, Barcelona some years ago when suddenly many of our interests crystallised and we knew what we wanted to do: create and live in a Village for the Future.
We are inspired by the thoughts and work of many people, in particular David Fleming, Helena Norberg-Hodge, Allan Savory, Alastair Parvin, Joel Salatin and many others, who we will discuss elsewhere.
In memory of Alice the Pussycat, Mr George McDoggle, and Mr Barney Courtney-Hardiman, all of whom would have loved Foldehampton.
