i finished the first weekend of my permaculture design course yesterday at the local community centre. not a lot of new information (i’m sure the rest of the course will be more exciting), but i meet meet some really nice people. our course director runs a co-operatively managed allotment in queen’s park here in glasgow and i’ve been offered some space (including use of the greenhouse). this is fantastic news, because it might take a while to get our front garden fully functional. anyway, i’m in queen’s park every day with the dog anyway, so i’m really excited about both having some space in an allotment and meeting more glaswegian horticulturists.
