I spent most of the weekend in a tent with some engaging livestock and some engaging characters at a local food festival. Thanks to the Tyrells crisps
lady and the organic coffee stand next door for keeping me going. Anyway, a couple of plugs for the folk there... I ended up selling Charles "no-dig" Dowding's salad rather unsuccessfully (sorry Charles), so I thought I ought to promote his website.
I enjoyed meeting Angela Morley,
local garden designer and fellow beekeeper, and Tim from Daylesford, promoting their organic farm school courses.
Tim, do include a scything course in your programme; it's good for the scythers and good for the hedgehogs! I must visit the site and see the wetland project. Oh, and Jessie was there from the Global Bee Project,
a new charity promoting awareness of all types of bee.
