Permaculture offers us practical solutions for healthy living, growing our own food, becoming more resilient and locking up carbon to slow down climate change.
Meet Liz Zorab, from Byther Farm, who shows how permaculture methods and no dig help her grow 85% of her own food on less than an acre.
Visit Martin Crawford at the Agroforestry Research Trust and learn how we can all help sequester carbon, even in our back gardens, by growing woody shrubs that also produce food, medicines, and timber.
Learn how medical herbalist, Anne Stobart, grows the medicinals in her cottage garden and how you can bring them into your personal health routine.
Karen Lawton, one of the Seed SistAs, then shows us how to make a foraged spring salad with colourful flowers and 'weeds' for a nutrient packed salad to feed the body, mind and soul – a real feast for the eyes!
All five of these fantastic gardeners are featured in the new issue Permaculture Magazine 104. Find out more here: www.permaculture.co.uk/issue/summer-2020
