We opened up the farm to the public today for International Permaculture Day. We snapped a birds eye view of the garden before our visitors arrived.
The garden is looking particularly beautiful at the moment. We can put that partly down to the glorious weather we are experiencing lately and partly due to the hard work we've put into the garden with a very special thankyou to our volunteers and working bee participents. A real community effort.
We offered two tours and a wicking bed demo. We had around 60 visitors throughout the day and recieved many wonderful comments about our farm. The people were enthusatic and friendly, indicative of most permies we get to meet.
We set up a little display with photos and brochures, and a few things to sell. The seeds and cotton dishcloths were most popular. And while Mark conducted the tours I manned the stall along with my trusty spinning wheel to keep me company. The children were quite happy to watch the wool turning into yarn.
