Hello Cheryl here and very excited this morning about my polytunnels or as I call them my caves where i love to escape to they truly are my happy places. The polytunnels are doing so well so just wanted to share, I will try and remember the name of the variety of strawberries that I mention they are white in colour not the usual red and they truly do taste like pineapples I highly recommend to put in your garden too.

Good morning from me Alan,just thought that I would share my holiday pics, a little piece of healing rewilding.
A few sunset and sunrises from our short week away. But the pictures do not give justice to the display that nature gave to us. What the pictures didn’t show was how wide the vision and the spread of colour. The rising sun rose so quick and became so bright you could not look but all the shadows of night lifted leaving vivid summer green around.
The sunsets were the opposite slow, reluctantly giving way to the night, flickering it’s colour all around, even touching the moon behind us, and the moving water, along the sand and rock and all across the horizon. The sea was roaring some breakers over 6 foot high and 5,6 or more at a time crashing on the sandy beaches. There was no storm just power of the sea, which cast a mist of salty spray drifting inland. The beach was about 2 or3 miles long between an old fishing village and town, with only a few people there. Some pictures need to be experienced…with experience you connect to to the world, you become more grounded, more balanced, true reality is finding your place in the world not where the world wants to place you.

Hi Cheryl here 👋 Always the little things that make you smile and be grateful sat in my little house enjoying the indoor window garden watching the sunshine, plants are so healing. So even if you don't have a big outside garden have a window garden 🏵️

Hi Alan here 👋 The dog mercury plant often found growing amongst many edibles in hedgerows. I was foraging for my food for tea last night picking ground elder,nettles,ramsons for stir fry, nice but please just be aware, check what you pick connect to what you pick not smashing and grabbing, check when you wash (always wash especially when plants are low or close to gates, roads, tracks ect) ID always,if in doubt do not eat. Stay safe and enjoy.

The walk to the shop, it’s only a mile down the road. I took the scenic route. The first pic is actually an overgrown foot path, couldn’t resist 4 hr later back for tea. And I forgot butter for toast for the wild garlic oh well I fully enjoyed connecting to nature. And my wife is doing the same at sacred sisters camp.

Some pictures of our little patch of nature. We grow fruit and veg as a crop, we harvest what nature gives us and encourage wild edible companions. It is developing into a proper foragers allotment.

Did you know that there is a natural antidepressant in the country? It’s a Mycobacterium vaccae bacteria found in the soil that humans ingest or inhale when they spend time in nature and gardening. This bacteria stimulates the brain part responsible for producing serotonin. The most passionate gardeners will tell you that their garden is their “happy place” and that the actual physical act of gardening reduces stress and lifts mood. 😍 Mycobacterium vaccae also improves cognitive function, it has an effect on Crohn’s disease and even rheumatoid arthritis. The natural effects of these antidepressant bacteria in the soil can be felt for up to 3 weeks. 🌱🌱🌱🌱

The intrinsic interconnection between it all. 🌳🙏

Stunning flower and plant is all edible but mostly grown as ornamentals, found in wild and native, any guess’s. The flower has the tell tale clue off the Brassicaceae family, the taste is a peppery radish like, others have described as mustard or spicy cabbage, in fact there are recipes for mustard using the roots. I have not tried this. one for this year. No dangerous look a likes but always test first time get a positive ID, be safe and enjoy.

It is still wild garlic season or Ramsons Allium ursinum (lower pic, white flower) but in same hedgerow lords and ladies Arum maculatum. Not a problem with the Arum leafs being older but remember early on in the season they can look alike. Careful inspection and garlic smell tells them apart. Happy foraging.

Wild Garlic is finally starting to appear up North! 🌱

We're loving greeting plant pals that we've missed so much over the Winter months, along with Nettle and Cleavers making an appearance!

These wild Spring greens are just what our bodies need at this time of year.

Wild Garlic is antibacterial, antifungal and anti-viral.

Take care not to pull up the bulbs, leave them in the soil. As always when foraging only take what you need, pick mindfully with respect for the Earth 🙏🏼🌱

Here's a favourite recipe for you for Nettle and
Wild Garlic soup:

1 onion chopped

2 potatoes chopped

A colander of nettle tops (150-200g )

1 litre of vegetable stock

Olive oil

Wild garlic to taste

Wash the nettles. Add olive oil to the pan and add in the chopped onion. Cook until softened.

Add in the potato and the stock, and nettles cook until the potato is soft around 20 minutes then blend until smooth.

Add in the wild garlic at the last moment blending again adding it to your taste. Season with salt and pepper.

Enjoy! 🙏🏼💚🌱

"The old threads are unraveling,
Get your needles ready.
We are stitching a new quilt
of Humanity.

Bring your old t-shirts,
worn out jeans, scarves,
antique gowns, aprons,
old pockets of plenty
who have held Earth's treasures,
stones, feathers, leaves,
love notes on paper.

Each stitch
A mindful meditation.
Each piece of material
A story.

The more colour the better,
so call in the Tribes.
Threads of browns, whites,
reds, oranges
Women from all nations
start stitching.

Let's recycle the hate, the abuse,
the fear, the judgment.
Turn it over, wash it clean,
ring it out to dry.
It's a revolution
of recycled wears.

Threads of greens, blues, purples
Colourful threads
of peace, kindness,
respect, compassion
are being stitched
from one continent to the next
over forests, oceans, mountains.

The work is hard
Your fingers may bleed.
But each cloth stitched together
Brings together a community.
A world, our future world
Under one colourful quilt.
The new quilt of humanity."

Starting to see the daffodils starting to bloom, I love seeing the first blooms of spring coming.. sharing a picture of the beautiful community gardens where I am very blessed to work in 🌍🌼🌳🌸

A few ramblings of my thoughts to be shared on a cold windy morning, ..
i love the idea of returning to the old ways, working with our hands and finding peace, joy and comfort in creativity with long ago sustainable skills such as making rag rugs, spinning wool and weaving, working with healing plants to nourish our bodies..my service to mother earth is to share this wisdom and the teachings of the old ways and to keep these skills alive esoecially in this age we are in today to be the most self reliant creative thinking individuals that our ancestors aspired and had to be and we too can be.. 🌳



20/02/2022

Whey hey we have baby seedlings growing, we love this time of year when there is so much growing opportunities the excitement of choosing seeds, choosing what food to grow for yourself to be self reliant for the year ahead..Especially important right now in these uncertain times we are living in when all fuel and food prices are rising.. over the next few weeks we will be demonstrating what you yourself could be growing at home even in a small area.. 🌸🌳🌼

Why it's good to be creative 🧶For me I love the ancestoral connection that my chosen crafts to do gives to me this is a gift from my ancestors that has been passed from generation to generation..keeping these sustainable skills going in this modern age of consumerism has turned into a passion for myself personally..
But also did you know that any form of crafting can improve your physical and also mental well being.. here are four ways that my textile crafts helps my well being..
1. Your chosen craft can reduce stress..
Stress is one of the leading causes of our health issues in these modern times..from causing physical discomforts like headaches to severe health issues such as heart failure, stress can take a severe toll on our health and impact our quality of life.. Taking time out of you day to pick up a craft for me this is spinning, weaving, and rag rugging, for me this is a form of meditation..which will help to calm your mind, help to reduce stress and its harmful side effects on your body..
2. Crafting can reduce the risk of age related memory loss..
Much research and studies have linked crafts to reduced memory impairment..crafts provides a calming effect also evokes memories and provides community interaction plus reduces anxiety..
3.crafting provides a sense of community and belonging.. having friends is good for your immune system, studies have found that having social support in the form of relationships and friendships has a positive impact on our health..crafting is a great way to make new friendships over a shared passion that you have..
4. Crafting can help with insomnia and sleep issues..
It always helps me to turn the tv off put my phone away and wind down doing some of my crafting..I have at times struggled to go to sleep so I know first hand how awful it is to function in our daily lives with having poor sleep..
Replacing screen time with crafting was the key for me and helped me immensely. .

While crafting has so many benefits for our physical and mental health I've often found that I can get carried away and let time slip away whilst I'm crafting, so really important is to be mindful to get up and stretch a few times too.. filling your life with things that bring you joy can only be a good thing right?
Happy crafting friends 🧶

Eee something to think about 🌸

Wondering why there aren’t any red roses in our Valentines flowers? Well, English roses flower beautifully in June. It’s now February. So, any rose that you may wish to buy will have been flown around the world to get to you. The consequence being a staggering carbon footprint (2.4kg per single rose 😱).

I spent today training people in Carbon & Climate Literacy - explaining why each and every one of us needs to look at everything we do and make changes to protect what we love.

So, I’ll sell roses in June. Here in February why not show the love with delicious red tulips grown in the renewably heated greenhouses of in Lincolnshire. Be the change you want to see.

Email me [email protected] or ring 10am-4pm and we’ll take it from there! 😘

Self reliance skills are so important for our world today, learning these skills that our ancestors once had do need to be kept alive.. here on the lap today is a new rag rug seat pad so cosy and comfy for the rocking chair..
What self reliant skills do you feel drawn to do ?
