    Guerilla gardening

    You walk past the same patch of wasteland every morning. Your kids always comment on it, how empty and barren it looks. Broken supermarket trolleys, carrier bags, scratchy bare earth and rubble can all be glimpsed through a wire fence. Several rows of houses back onto the wasteland and many people see this barren landscape from their windows, not to mention all of the people who walk and drive past it every day.

Spring is naturally a time of creation too, when the Earth’s fertility translates as a general quest to make and create at home.

    Tools for change

    Spring heralds a time of change. In the world around us, we see the wheel of the year continue on its cycle and enter a new phase and, whether we like it or not, we’re going along for the ride! Sometimes it can feel like we need just a few more winter weeks to really gather our thoughts and ideas before we bring them into the light. But spring comes leaping and bouncing into our lives with the energy of the lambs, and demands that we shake off the cobwebs and dance into the warmer, brighter days. […] more
