Front garden free shop 2/3/4 October – food, seeds, resources, instructions – details nearer the time. Facebook @grampiandementialnc AB42 5PB



Everyone has had their lives disrupted in some way this year and many people spent a lot of time at home.
Some people are thinking about food and access to it. Some have been learning new techniques. Some have started growing food.
Some people might not be able to think of anything they have tried this year that is new but the point is that there is still time.
I’m sending out seeds, bulbs and resource sheets to local projects so that everybody can have a go.
I am going to have a mini free shop outside my house too, 3-5 October, for people to take as they wish. Resources, recipes, veg, herbs, seeds etc.
The online event will involve pictures and film clips but it’s  mostly about trying new things.
I’ve learned to make goat’s cheese, yoghurt, sourdough, and I’ve grown veg for the first time ever. I will share my learning!
Here is the Dropbox shared folder link so that you can access how-to videos for knitting, making crowdie and writing inspiration. There are instruction sheets for growing salad and making butter and many other skills.
You can drop by my free shop in my front garden any time over the weekend at AB42 5PB and you can see it on Fun Palaces TV at 10am on Saturday.
