Want to learn to eat with the seasons? Already a pro but want to help others follow in your footsteps? Join the 2017 Local Farm and Forage Challenge! (Link in profile)
I'm building a community of folks all across North America who want to inspire and motivate each other to eat locally through the height of the growing season-- whether farmed or foraged.
From June through the end of August, I'll send out reminders to keep you on track, recommend in-season foods you're likely to find at the farmers market and in your nearest wooded space, and spark conversations about why it's so vitally important for us all to think differently about where our food comes from.
This is a 100% free service that I'm offering to anyone who's game. Sign up today!
En ce moment c'est jus de myrtilles pour tout le monde à la maison. Anti-oxydant, bon pour la vision, bourré de vitamines. Bref on ne s'en lasse pas! Et puis ce petit goût d'été nous fait du bien pour affronter les torrents d'eau qui s'abattent dehors. 🙊
I'm working on my next fortnightly email newsletter. Are you signed up? Honestly, it's totally exciting stuff. You get to hear what I'm up to, links to recipes, a bunch of random tips and advice, all in a short email you can read whilst you have your morning cuppa (or evening wine). Find sign up forms on my website, link in bio. Do it people!
A huge thank you to Mauricio and Janne at Reco Veco, thank you for giving us the opportunity to be apart of your family for a week, teaching us about Permaculture, natural farming and giving us an insight on a different lifestyle. Your hard work and dedication to a eco friendly lifestyle is amazing and inspiring. Sitting under the stars talking about life and sharing stories every night, laughing and joking. It has been a pleasure. Few days in Punta Del Este then next stop Beunos Aires, Argentina ✌😀 #southamerica#uruguay#argentina#workaway#volunteerwork#permaculture#naturalfarming
On April 14th I will start my WOOFing experience at Graine et Ficelle, outside Nice. Founded by Isabella Sallusti, ex Parisian stylist and passionate advocate of permaculture, eating from the land and living a high quality of life. She is ambitious and talented; and under the umbrella of Graine et Ficelle organises cooking classes & workshops in permaculture; hosts WOOFers and guests at her eco lodge; and has a charity called SO FOOD, which invests in creating permaculture farms, providing food and knowledge to communities around the world.
Recently we had been asked for the accurate size of our gardens. I used a drone photo of the gardens by Curtis Stone, and measured the gardens by using our tunnel house size (15 meters long) as a reference to calculate the square meters of land we use to farm.
Very close to 5 blocks (give or take) of 225m2 = 1125m2
1125/4000(acre) = 0.28
1125m2 = 12109f2
0.28 is pretty close to 0.25, which is a 1/4 acre!!!!!! #crushingit#smallscalefarm#marketgarden#mapping
No dig garden making at Northey Street City Farm today with the fabulous Intro to Permaculture students. Today we explored the principles, ethics, design considerations, perennials, pioneers, self-seeding veggies, edible flowers, soils, compost , worms....Tomorrow we plant the garden, make seed balls, seed save, propagate herbs and perennial veggies, create a mini-wicking pot, make comfrey oil, whip up a DIY beeswax cloth and much more - can't wait. I love teaching permaculture classes!! #permaculture#cityfarm#ecoliving#urbanfarming#communitygarden#ourpermaculturelife
Gluten Free Pizza for dinner, using my Multipurpose GF Bread Dough #recipeonwebsite which makes such a great pizza base! Whilst the grown ups had rustic but traditional style bases, the kids had their bases shaped as letters.
