From the Glog
Winter has officially arrived. Well not officially, but for me first snow means that autumn is coming to an end, even though it always melts away for another month or even two. Here are some impressions from the garden on the 28th and 29th of October 2019.
It is 2017 and my parents were on holidays at Beyond Buckthorns and they told me during a walk that something needs to be done with one of the sheds, especially with the color of the walls, which was already coming off.
This article is a recipe for me (actually more a documentation) and for Maria who I have given a "mother" during the meeting of the Finnish Permaculture Association in Koroinen, because she asked me for one during our PDC at Elontila.
Who we are
When we got the offer from Lumias mother to take over her two-hectare premises in the countryside of Finland we jumped for joy. For us living in the countryside in a house with a big garden was a big dream - after years and years of city dwelling we had grown to realize we want to live in nature, with nature, and this was our chance.
After one and a half years of learning, planning and jumping for joy we packed our bags in Germany and moved into our new home in May 2016. Join us on our journey in making the premises our dream come true - a Nordic permaculture paradise!
