Local Food Through EarthAbbey’s Grow Zones permaculture project

Grow Zones is a project that I've been running in Bristol for the last few months – growing food and friendships. It is a practical project for EarthAbbey which accounts for about a fifth of my time and here is a short movie that tells you all about it.

What is embody? I was just asked that by a writer for the Sunday Times doing a piece about happiness at work. She could be forgiven some confusion looking at the range of subjects covered by these posts but any purveyor of fine “Aha” moments must follow where the path leads. It all makes sense to me and creativity, coaching/teaching and spirituality are the key ingredients.

Grow Zones has been amazing. From the surface it may seem like a worthy project getting people to grow and eat local food along permaculture principals but during the season it seemed like much more than food was growing; community with purpose. The future of Grow Zones depends on some successful funding bids which will hopefully see the project launched nationally next year. In the meantime my garden, which benefited from the first group visit, has a lively wildlife pond, loads of vegetable beds and seeds sown to grow in them.

I've walked across the border a few times. Both camps might be a little surprised to know that nature doesn't reflect one. #Scotland

But the UK cried, "Oh, please don't go – we'll eat you up – we love you so!" And Alex said, "No!". And the UK roared their terrible roars ..

@dimplesthankiya totally agree. Worked with lots of folk who didn't get that quite right.

@tweenders have some @VIVOBAREFOOT neo trails which are fine so I might stop looking for anything else and try them on the road later today.

@tweenders building up to a hilly trail ½ m sometime before Christmas. Would like to do it 'barefoot'.
