Starting small. Three raised beds. Tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, beans, raspberries. Bit by bit. But definitely a good thing to do. The Food Bank can't offer fresh food, technically, in the parcels it hands out. But we can offer it on the side, to be taken if wanted. And we know it is; the people who use the Food Bank tell us. So sleeves rolled up, trowels out. :) Crack on.
Got to love yer pallets. Bit of a rub down, spot of unused paint, bob's yer pallet. Says it like it is. And I can vouch for every ingredient. Place is HUMMING with bees. Extraordinary. :)
A brilliant day in Hayle, working with Hayle in Bloom with support from the Cornwall Community Foundation - flowers, plants, seeds, posters, displays, honey, hives, bee signs, bee hotels, and loads of comfrey and strawberry plants to take home and make a bee cafe with! So much fun, and so many people wanting to learning about bees. How uplifting... and click here for more lovely photos...We're DEF going to do more of this. :)
They worked so hard! Petra and Ondra, and even John and Toni, 7 and 3, worked - and helped us make our first batch of bee hotels, ready for our Blooming Bee Friendly Day in June. We ate and laughed and worked and sang together - clearing bracken, cutting back bramble, shifting tonnes (literally) of fantastic 3 year old local horse manure, barrowing firewood, spreading chipping mulch. A week went so fast; and now we have friends in Prague - what a fabulous way to meet fabulous people.
