Moira+Gareth+Alan+I joined Niall in his garden this morning on the first of this year’s Growzone Saturdays - essentially, getting people together to grow (and eat!) local food along permaculture principals. I’m NOT a gardener, but even I found last year’s sessions hugely enjoyable – and educational. Today was another really good morning – starting at 9am and finishing just after 12 noon (with a brief stop for coffee and biscuits), then a delicious shared lunch together. An amazing amount of work was completed in three hours: with old suitcases being used to plant out potatoes and a previously-felled apple tree cleared and cut up (ready for making charcoal).
Photos: suitcase planters; coffee break and some of the neatly-stacked bits of wood.
