Three acres of Permaculture and seven years of growing from scratch…monoculture emptiness.
A journey via Permaculture that has led me to give up smoking, become a Vegetarian and evolve into a Vegan.
Happy to be an Economic Terrorist…I rarely shop, so that makes me an enemy of the Corporate State…and anyone who wants to rant about me being a Conspiracy Theorist…well, I live in the real world and watched as Ireland was handed over to the Corporations, mostly banks, bankers and greed-mongers…if this resonates with you then be prepared to be dismissed as a C.T.!
You can’t buy anything on this site…everything I advocate comes for free and I’m happy to welcome visitors to this Permaculture Smallholding and show them around, even send them off with free plants and advice on how to do permaculture.
A willow arbour. Free. No Garden centre involved here! No money, just the abundance and love and goodness that is Nature…beyond money and the Merchants of Greed!
And places to sit made from upcycled castaway wood and concrete blocks…free!
Hens at Bealtaine today…Battery eggs are degraded food…the corporations will degrade you because you are little more to them than battery hens!
The Permaculture Polytunnel this morning. Spilling over with food and seeds…Seeds are the bankable currency of the VERY near future! Why do think the US government shares the control of GM seeds with that Monster Monsanto?
Nature is perfect…so why does all the corps., want to control and degrade her?
The birds are nesting again in this little bird box. They come and go with little fear of people walking close-by.Bealtaine Permaculture Smallholding has been free from all chemicals for seven years next month. May, or Bealtaine in Irish, will be the seventh anniversary for this permaculture paradise. This Saturday will be the last time to visit, for a while… Bealtaine will be open for all to come and see a permaculture smallholding in real time. Visitors are welcome from 10am until around 6pm. Buds are continuing to develop on the climbing Rose. Lettuce and strawberries continue to grow well in the hanging baskets, high above the ground in their slug-free zone!
Willi Paul from Planetshifter Magazine in America asked me yesterday how I was doing…and I told him…that this year at Bealtaine Cottage Smallholding was on course to be the bumper harvest of all time!
This is the seventh year of permaculture here on the land and the magic of Nature continues unabated. Blossom, the promise of fruit and food, is in abundance this morning!
The Redcurrants are coming…
. What is happening on this earth is crucial to our survival…we need good food, clean water, clean air and a deeper understanding of our Mother Earth. So many writers are beginning to articulate these needs and provide guides for us to be able to start engaging… Bealtaine is here for all to see and gain from. It is not about ME, no pics of ME…it is about the possible overcoming the improbable, about hope and living a better life WITH this struggling planet.
What will be…heavy droplets of blossom promise heavy bunches of redcurrants, for free!
Flowers on one of the plum trees this morning…there is nothing more delicious to eat when feshly harvested from your own trees. These should be planted in every town and village in Ireland, for all to eat and enjoy!
And cherries…lots and lots of sweet cherries…councils should be urged to plant fruit trees in public spaces…why on EARTH not?
Blossom is beautiful, it lifts the spirit and feeds the soul. The fruit that follows feeds all, including the birds. Perfect!
