As we look forward to the first spring since we took on Low Luckens, 2016 is set to be an exciting year for Eva’s Organics. The most important development will be the construction of new polytunnels to increase dramatically the amount of organic produce we grow ourselves. In addition to building the new structures we have to make sure that the transformation of the land they will cover – from wet pasture into productive garden – proceeds as efficiently as possible. For us, that means using gentle techniques to manipulate the natural power of plants and all that surround them above and below ground with the primary aim of creating the kind of healthy enduring soil structure that not only supports healthy crops but enhances the life support system of our fragile planet. That may sound like a bold claim for a sixteen acre patch of Cumbrian turf – it’s true though. And you are very welcome to come and find out exactly what we mean. The methods we use can be applied easily to your garden or allotment without any need for expensive and polluting machinery.
So before you finalise your new year’s resolutions which no doubt includes “Eat more organic fruit and vegetables”, you can also add “Become a volunteer gardener at Low Luckens”. In this way you can learn all our gardening secrets as well as help us to continue improving our planet-saving Eva’s Organics growing system.
