Description – As with any other permaculture inspired project or solution the natural swimming pool is a method of mimicking natural systems, which are the purest of them all. Not only is this the most natural method, but is more cost effective and requires less human input in the form of maintenance. Just like healthy soil, a balanced water system contains all the microorganisms needed to provide you with water so clean, you could wash with it and also drink it. The purpose of the pool is to create a more self-sufficient community on the cat farm.

The challenge for the ecological pool builder is to harness nature’s own processes to produce clean, clear water. The land allows for off the grid living and has the potential for a permaculture system to be in place. This project is ideal for a creative, ambitious soul that wants the chance to lead their own project whilst using some solid foundations that are already in place. It is a place with all the tools you need to let your imaginative ideas run free.
