Permaculture Group

Image This month the Permaculture Group got together in Jeremy's garden in Froxfield to make polythene cloches. We cut up the curved 4mm wire supports indoors, in the warm! The ends of these supports were bent into loops so that string could be threaded through them on the outside of the polythene sheet to secure it to the frame. Here we are, despite the drizzle, putting it all together in an effort to protect winter salad crops from the cold and wind.

 

 

Practical Permaculture for Transition Training

Image 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 this year's course we all retired to the pub afterwards for a well earned lunch!
