January pollinators

What do we have around for any bees out in the increasingly mild month of January?

So far it’s been really wet here on the west, but very little snow around us.

In between the showers there are likely to be winter insects, even bees, out and about.

What do we have flowering for them?

Mahonia, Gorse, Ivy, Periwinkle, Hellebores, Snowdrops

There is strong growth on the other early bulbs, and plans to take lots of cuttings so that the Mahonia can be spread into hedge rows across the farm. The flowers and berries are edible too.

Love giving vintage fabrics a new purpose : .
Each of these are 100% cotton and can be used many many times before they can be put on the compost heap.
The common sizes are approximately 30 x 30 for £7 : 25 x 25 for £5 :
Using vintage fabrics, I choose sizes that creates zero waste so most designs are in a mix of sizes, and some only one size, whatever makes the best use of the design or the cloth.

Some of these are available into the Made In Argyll shop in Oban on the pier. They are also available direct from the farm, including mail order. There is a paypal button beside each pattern. I will refund excess postage for multiple purchases.

Make 2020 the year we ditch the single use plastic, care for our planet, and these are such a lovely way to take a simple step.

Sales to the United Kingdom only at this time. Many thanks

It’s not just woodland

We have several land management routes to support ourselves and our ecosystems into the future.
Creating Living Larders that can happen on a micro community level as well as on commercial agriculture / estate level will change our food ecosystems as well as creating massive carbon sequestration.
Repairing our soil biosphere : by many means including no dig gardening, forest gardens, regenerative agriculture and trees mixed is best.
Improving grasslands by regenerative livestock and no till agriculture that also gives us a lot of high quality low input protein, greens, etc as well as moving away from fossil fuel dependence for arable crops : chemicals, plastic, machinery, energy for drying, shipping, processing. As well as high dependence on water for irrigation.
Mixed woodland also gives us fruit, nuts, herbs, greens, vital mychorrizal activity that releases the as well as creating new micro habitats that allow more food species to be grown
The grasslands are the biggest carbon sink, the woodland the most long term stable.
We need all these, alongside the renewable energy, the reduction of plastic use and waste, and investment in innovation to find new solutions.. and each of us can do something to help right here, right now.
