12 Months of Milkwood

| Milkwood Farm | 3 comments | Author :


Wow what a ridiculously big and beautiful year! We’ve come so far from where we were at the start of 2012 that I can barely believe it.

But we have photographic evidence, so it must have all happened. Here’s 12 months of thrills and spills at Milkwood…

January: 2 weeks in the life of a Permaculture Design student (video)

February: our first proper potato harvest
March: hosting a very big Earthship talk in Sydney! (and some resources)
April: The dark and the light: eating different honeycombs as part of natural beekeeping…
May: Glass Gem Corn, and other heirloom jewels of the corn cabinet…
June: Urine, Peak Phosphorous and on-farm Nutrient Cycling
July: Growing Oyster Mushrooms in a Bucket
August: We’re in the Tinyhouse. And it is awesome.
September: Rockin the row cover – protecting spring crops
October: Designing a MicroForest Garden
November: The wisdom of the radish (why we eat the way we do)
December: Learning to be ethical omnivores

Whew. Here’s to a huge year. We’ve learned SO much about, well, everything. Thanks to everyone involved – family, crew, students, earthworms and all the rest. We love you and your work. May 2013 bloom bright for you all xxx
