Three weeks away
Hello all, well I got back last night for a weekend at home, after 3 whole weeks away building gardens for schools with the Sector 39 garden design team. Great to be back home, the garden is a bit baked, but most things seem to have survived, it is all very overgrown however, I think the strimmer will need an airing!
Dawn and Caroline, who both completed the permaculture course here this year came down to Reading for the third week to help with the schools gardens, we had a great time and got loads donw, so thanks to them for that. We called it their practical apprenticeship.. and they did very well. Lots to be learned about difficult customers, but perhaps it would be indescrete to go on about that here. But a big lesson that is there to be learned is about designing around customer expectations... they may agree that they want a forest garden but what is all that cardboard about? and poo! really is it going to be smelly and messy? etc.
Anyway, home now, tea to be drunk and its great to see fluffy cat resplentdant in her summer coat, her winter look was all dready before, she looked liked she had been at a pop festival or something!
