Scything. On old skill - and a fossil fuel, healthy, productive way of harvesting grass and managing wildflower meadows..

wonderful wonderful willow

wonderful wonderful willow

Willow is awesome. It turns wetland into better habitat, helps store water, captures carbon, creates pollinator space and offers material for baskets, walls, fencing and staking. Awesome.

Bargain! 2 Separett Weekend composter toilets (akaTorp Isak)

For sale, 2 handsome Separett Weekend toilets (see http://www.separett.eu/weekend-eu). These are the off-grid 12v version (electricity's needed for the tiny ventilator fan, same as a computer fan). Perfect for when you're developing an off-grid setup, when you want to see how things go without spending the earth (we've upgraded!). Or for minimum installation cost in a campsite or cottage, to help give your visitors an idea of how we can all be more be responsible for our own effect on the planet - and indeed make good use of it! One white, one 'granite'. Used, and while they have a few slight scratches here and there, they're immaculately clean and in very good order (easy to maintain, because of their integral bag-it-and-bin-it design). New, they cost nearly £400 - ours, you can have for £200 each or £300 the pair. Collect from Looe area, or (when my son and his campervan are around the place) we could deliver for a contribution (to be agreed, depending on distance).
