The land is in Doniford on the West Coast. It is probably big enough for 2 allotments if anyone is intersted. We would buy any surpless they grow to sell in our farm shop

Hi Linda,

What size of solar dryer do you want? You probably don't need it in this weather..., so plenty of time to plan!

Hi Linda

Looking forward to meeting you hopefully and getting to know what is happening in our new home community :-)

Hi Linda, thanks. Nettles are a super food and greatly under used and under valued - if they were only grown in a India for example we would be importing them and they would be marketed as a super food at a high price.

No plans to teach but open to do so if there is a demand -I think Nicole was thinking of doing some herbal related course at her place at Compton where she is also planning to grow herbs etc......

Hello you!

What a brilliant resource this will be. Yes, Santa's back in the North Pole. My little lad is here with me now. Perfect! When he goes I'll be back in the loop - I like that Street will be on the map; FoodMap.

Happy 2012

Stu
