Food and Farming
One of the most precious aspects of my routine is growing my own food. Growing food is something I have found to vastly improve my own mental health whilst also providing me with fresh organic ingredients to eat. Combined with the hours I spend being outdoors planting seeds and building raised beds my food farming has now become an integral and vital part of my everyday life.
Over the past few years I have been cultivating a large food garden using various organic methods. I combine no-dig with a touch of permaculture. Making my own compost is something I began to do a few years ago and it has vastly improved the quality of my soil and is easier on my wallet. I’m trying to build as healthy a space as possible.
I am not alone on my plot. I have a glorious array of wildlife who have been increasing in numbers ever since I started cultivating the, before, rather unloved patch of land on which my food grows. From field mice to barn owls and from ants to bats I get to witness and be surrounded by the most incredible display of animals. Next to my vegetable patch I am developing a wildlife garden complete with (another) pond, a forest bed and filled with plenty of wildflowers, herbs, insect homes and bird boxes.
My work life is quite hectic and so getting outside, for as many hours a day possible, is my own way of keeping sane. I find peace in the outdoors. Every spare moment I have I spend gardening, hiking or playing outside. If I can work outside then I will and can often be found getting my paperwork done in the greenhouse throughout the Spring and Summer.
