Topic: Getting 'Gifty' with the Garden
Let's get Creative for Christmas. This evening will be a fun get together to learn how to make some nice things from and for the garden.
We will make 'seedbombs' which can be fun and educational gifts, and are fun for kids too.
If you have any gifty garden ideas, please bring them to share, preferably with some instructions we can copy or write down. Things such as plant based Christmas decorations and edible treats.
Looking forward to getting gifty with you!

Hi, is anyone able to help me to sort out the following according to sunlight requirement? apple, pear, plum, cherry, apricot, peaches/nectarines... I'm designing a food forest and need to place them in their best spot accordingly.
I am working through the Food Bill.
My comment so far. It is the sort of legislation that was used in communist Russia to starve or otherwise eliminate somewhere between 30 million and 50 million Ukranians in the 1930's.
Unless there is blanket exemption for home gardeners, farmers' markets, and bartering, we are heading down a fatal road. Let your MPs be clearly aware of our great concern.
See the link below for an English town growing its own veggies.
The Food Bill is a noxious bit of legislation. I have an excellent reply from the US. It is about an English town that is growing its food in open spaces. How do I put a link to the article?
There's lots of seed bomb instructions online e.g. http://www.guerrillagardening.org/ggseedbombs.html
and many more.
We could learn together if there's no one who's done it before to teach.
Seed paper for cards/gift wrapping would also be cool:
Let's get crafty!
