Time for Courage, Respect and Compassion

Thanks to all of the people and organizations around the world who stand for courage, compassion, love, respect and equality for all, irrespective of race, religion, age, gender, sexuality, political views or any of the many other reasons that some people use as an excuse to behave badly towards others. We are so glad that the number of people who want a safe, peaceful world for all is so much greater than those who do not.

Richgro - Waste To Clean Energy and Compost

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to go an excursion to Richgro with Horticulture students and it was an extremely interesting and inspiring place to visit. As someone who takes recycling and organic gardening very seriously it was like being in a second home there. We had guides explaining all of the processes that are occurring there and how much time, thought and energy, is going into making this plant not only sustainable but beneficial to the environment. I had known that they transformed food waste into compost but now every time I see a Veolia truck now I smile because I know that it is taking waste products to be transformed into compost or energy.

In Our Garden

These bananas and the sweet potato vine have all come from one 'mother' plant so represent excellent value for anyone who wants to be able to propagate their own plants for free. Not only that they are beautiful plants and produce delicious food.

One of the four grape vines that have fruited in abundance this year, giving us fruit to eat and even more to share with others. The sweet potatoes shown here may not look delicious but they are and so was the pumpkin that was a volunteer as a result of our composting all of our food scraps.
We were given one lemon-grass plant about 6 years ago and from that have propagated over a hundred, most of which, like these, we have given away. As well we are glad to able to share with others the loquat trees that have grown from seeds from our tree and the mulberry trees that we have grown from cuttings. We love to see other people also getting pleasure, satisfaction and food from their own yards.
