…A small cottage, nestled into the west of Ireland…a sustainable sanctuary for Mother Earth, with magical gardens powered by permaculture, love and inspiration. Mother Earth can live without us. We cannot live apart from Her. It's time to nurture and care for our only home.
Permaculture Planting at Bealtaine Cottage
Cardboard and seaweed.
Copious amounts of both were brought to the cottage last Sunday by two followers of this Permaculture blog, Terri and Lol, now good friends!
Living by the Atlantic Ocean in Connemara, access to seaweed was available and, as Terri has a health shop, cardboard was plentiful.
Making the journey all the way from Connemara, with their friend, John, the boot of the car was opened and this incredible valuable material was hauled out.
Atlantic shore seaweed, bags of it, along with flattened cardboard, was to be used in the making of a new garden.
As with all permaculture gardening, it would be simple and easy.
I started this process yesterday and made a short film about my progress this morning…see the link at the bottom of the page.
Preparation of the permaculture is easy and takes a relatively short amount of time.
Permaculture is the easiest and most environmentally-friendly way to garden, grow or farm.
Permaculture considers every single aspect of the world around us, from the home, extending into the garden and beyond.
You will see how this is applied in some small way in the video.
