grow zones

A group of us spent yesterday morning digging+planting in Bruce+Sara’s huge back garden. It was all part of Earth Abbey’s “grow zones” project learning about the wonders of permaculture. I’m a hopeless gardener - I just like sitting in gardens with a glass of wine and the newspapers - but really enjoyed the physical work (stripping turf and helping to dig out a pond area) and the company. We worked together for three hours and seemed to achieve an awful lot in that time, before finishing with an impressive lunch in the garden.
Photos: combining work with play (well, food actually!).
PS: continuing the food theme, Stu cooked us a great Thai green curry last night to celebrate Ruth’s birthday (someone has to do it!).
