Kiwis in London

I was out on Hampstead Heath yesterday for work (honest). I decided to walk back towards Swiss Cottage for my weekly swim when something made me stop in my tracks. I don't think I've ever seen a kiwi vine in flower in real life, and certainly wasn't expecting to see one in London.

But this vine was so healthy looking and laden that it hung right over the pavement, which why I noticed them. See the photo's below.…

Looking to volunteer for gardening work

I take it that the pictures on the home page were from the event that took place last night? I really wanted to go along to this but I was too ill. Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone needed any ongoing assistance with gardening on the weekends, either in allotments, at home or whatever? Please contact me via the site.


Thanks,

Damian

Satish Kumar and Polly Higgins at Queen's Park Books 17th July

This was a great event, which I wrote up for Queen's Park Books website

Please read about it and Resurgence magazine there.

Lots of us were there from the group - we should have been wearing the t-shirts though!  The shop was packed, which shows what interest there is locally in activities such as ours, but quite a few members of the audience hadn't heard of us. …

WOOD SUITABLE FOR A WOOD BURNING STOVE

I have several bags of chopped up wood from felled trees and an old shed roof which would be suitable for burning in a wood stove or making a log pile. They are in my front garden, bagged and ready for taking away. Just let me know if you would like them.  Marjory

Babyhood - film

 

This project was born out of my experiences of having my first child, and how much it made me question myself and everything i thought was normal.



I couldn't help but be drawn to reading books looking at parenting practices, and deciphering them was hard. I started to realise that we (mothers and fathers) don't trust ourselves anymore to do the…

Regarding knitting classes at Kilburn Library

Unfortunately the classes are no longer available at Kilburn (or Kensal as it is closed) although they did run quite successfully for 2 years or so.

I no longer work there but I did approach the library to see if I could continue with the class anyway,sadly they have turned me down because of the impending refurbishment....in May apparently.

However, I would still be glad to run the class somewhere...any suggestions for locations and times?

I do have time on my…

Bee keeping photograph project.

Hi my name is Mike.

I am starting a project photographing bee keepers and bees themselves.

The project is about the mutual respect between the keeper and the bee, showing the beauty of the collection of honey and the care you put in collecting it. 

This is partly an issue-based project, due to the worldwide problems Apiarist are facing with the loss of Honey Bee Colonies, mainly associated with environment and climate factors, leading to the colony collapse disorder…

Sweet Chestnut Foraging

If you travel through Hyde Park there is a beautiful avenue of Sweet Chestnut trees (about a hundred) just north of the Rotten Row cycle path and just south of the Serpentine. They are ripe and ready. Take leather gloves for plucking them off the tree and roll the husks under foot to get the nuts out. I got a carrier bag full on Tuesday. The only other pickers were some Italian building workers in their lunch hour and the Serpentine geese are foraging too. Follow the geese for the trees where… Continue
