New just in, The Organisation I work with Penwith Environmental Network, has just been awarded £20,000 to develop 2 forest gardens! One will be beside Badger's Garden and one in Penzance at Love Lane.

This is tremendous news as it will enable us to put in 3 acres of fruit trees and plants. We can then propagate on from these plants to plant more land and provide this genetic stock to other projects in the area.

So it's going to be busy in the next few weeks, workshops to organise, trees to order, site studies, clearing bracken.

Well done to Steph who basically wrote the grant, I owe you a Purdeys!

My new workers

Looking round at the state of the garden it would be great to get these guys in for a few days, or is that minutes?
