This is the right time of year for pruning apple and pear trees, but not stone fruit trees such and plums and cherries. This is what the Permaculture Group learned at their last meeting. Milly led this session and advised us to take out all dead, dying and diseased branches first, followed by any that were crossing other branches. As we had all turned up with our secateurs, we went out into the chilly garden to practise on Barney and Rachel's rampant apple trees. This was followed with a delicious bowl of Rachel's soup, together with Jeremy's yummy freshly cooked bread.
The next permaculture course starts on 21st March - to book your place write to email@example.com
Practical Permaculture for Transition Training
The 'Low Energy Living' session was held in and around Gary's houseboat that was moored near Pewsey. Gary uses solar energy to power his boat, both for travelling up and down the canal and to charge his lap-top and mobile phone, and gleaned wood to heat his small stove. He also demonstrated his solar cooker and wind-up washing machine, while Jeremy took advantage of the occasion to boil water on his efficient rocket stove. Since this was the last session of the 2014 course we all retired to the pub afterwards for a well earned lunch!
