On August 4th we opened our gates to welcome in our members and local residents to celebrate the passing of the Winter Solstice.
We fired up the pizza oven, which was going to cook a winter roast beef and roast lamb, as a change from pizzas. Then as people arrived, we commenced the highlight of the day – a demonstration of how to use your winter whippy prunings to make a Hugel Kultur bed. Its a great way to turn a waste garden product (prunings) into a resource you can use on-site whilst saving a trip to the Resource Recovery Centre. It will become clearer as the photos will show below:
Jo Dodd, a local environmental educator, kindly agreed to give a demonstration of how to incorporate your prunings in your garden as a resource. Here she is with the first stage of building the basket bed.

is a great local resource if you are looking for environmental ideas and local activities relating to sustainable agriculture and sustainable living.
Sorry! No photos of our feast available – we were all too busy tucking into our roasts! But here’s a photo of our morning tea cake.
