The Orchard of Legends was rolled out this month, with a phenomenally positive response from the community.
I'm training to become a qualified bee-keeper - an eye opening journey and one which I'm writing about in the Kiwi Gardener Magazine, first article out on the 6th August.

Much of the food we consume, say from supermarkets, even our own gardens, is nutrient low. Some would say nutrient deficient. An apple for instance grown conventionally may have only half the nutrient values it should have.
This really fascinates me. I want to grow nutrient DENSE food. Don't you?
I've started learning how to do this, and I want you to learn too.
It all starts with the soil... stay tuned.
