Permaculture Magazine

Garden Organically

 

Do any of you read Permaculture Magazine? We have just found out about it and are very excited to see they not only sell lovely copper tools, but also have a fantastic website. On it you can:

Sign up to Permaculture courses.

Hear podcasts and watch videos about how people are changing the way they live to be more resilient and self-sustaining.

Find recipes for making use of plants and weeds you may not think about eating.

Get solutions for your own permaculture experiments.

(Oh, and you can of course buy the magazine….)

What is Permaculture?

“Permaculture is the design of an ecologically sound way of living.”

We thought this quote was beautiful and really inspires us to think about how we garden, work and live.

We hope you will take heart from this phrase and begin to question, then seek answers, for a way of life that suits both yourself and the world around you.

Running Low

Sorry to people asking for some of our pruning tools, but we have run out of a few items and are waiting for more to arrive. I did a number of garden talks this week and demonstrated the quality of some of the tools. This led to a run which I hadn’t anticipated! So apologies again if you are missing out, but everything should be back in stock by next week. Many thanks for all your support here at Modern Mint! Darren

A Very British Garden – New Garden Talk For 2019

A brand new garden talk for 2019? My, what exciting news! Having had a busy summer, with the topiary work exploding after the Guardian article, I have plans to write a new garden talk for next year. So far I have written 6 different talks in the 4 years I have been running Modern Mint, 4 of which are still available for you to book. They are: What Do I Do With This Space? A garden talk that looks at how other cultures treat their outdoor spaces. A mixture of funny stories and practical advice, it shares techniques people from …
