Last week, we learnt how to find food in our immediate environment. This week, we’re thinking longer term – how can we start growing food, once synthetic fertilisers run out, and you have to find your seeds somewhere other than B&Q.
The leader of this workshop was Steve Jones, a permaculture teacher and practitioner based in Wales. Ironically for a post-oil/future-thinking type, Steve’s sat nav broke, Compton Verney wasn’t marked on his physical map, and he phoned us up to say he’d be a little late as he desperately struggled to find out where he was. We filled the gap with an impromptu gardening workshop.
