What a lovely week! We were pleased to be joined by Amy and Karo on the Polyculture study who stopped by for a short visit and helped us out in the gardens planting out basil and peppers, preparing a new swale in the market garden (Aponia) and working on the irrigation channels, raised beds and wildlife pond in Phronensis. We’ve had great weather with the rains falling at night and warm sunshine in the mornings. Ivana from Permakulura(cs) in Czech Republic also popped by for a morning to see the gardens. It’s always a pleasure to learn of the many projects all over Europe.
Market Garden – Aponia
Allium schoenoprasum – Chives flowers are perfect for eating right now. The nectaries are full and although onion and sugar probably sounds like a combination you could give a miss it actually tastes pretty good :)
Wildlife in the Gardens
Food from the Gardens
If you would like to create a forest garden and gain some practical hands on experience come and join us in the Spring. We’ll be covering site surveying, landscape design software, installing access, beds, irrigation channels, planting tree, shrub, herb and ground layers and wildlife ponds. All in 3 days! And plenty of follow up material to take away with you to digest slowly.
