We've trying to up-skill as much as possible in the garden. Planting everywhere we can, using different and novel (as well as ancient) growing techniques and trying to integrate all this with our wider household economy and lifestyle.
We're doing this primarily to be the best stewards of what God has given us but also because, right now, we all need to play our part in averting the climate and soil disasters that are just around the corner. We're also doing this in order to gain the skills to help others near and and far to do the same. We've been reading/watching/gossiping about both permaculture and food foresting for some time now and are hoping to get both a Permacultre Design Course (PDC) and Food Forest Management course under our belts in the very near future. This will help us to better do the above but also give us a luachpad to better help our partners in South East Asia and elsewhere around the world... exciting times!
Number 1: Whistle Stop Tour Around The Garden
You really can pack a lot of fun things into a regular-ish sized garden (2/3 the size of the British average). Wish we’d done this 6 months ago... a lot has changed, will hopefully find some photos for reference.
Number 2: COMPOST
Hot Composting with Hotbin composting. Added intros from a video we put together for Creation Fest UK. This is perhaps the most important garden vlog we’ll do. Sure, we need a new breed of politics that ensures policies that are made safeguard the environment but we can all be doing our bit in our own back yard - if we don’t... food will run out in our kids’ lifetime and you already know where the climate is currently heading!
