We are excited to announce that as we expand and start up new edible garden projects we will try to contact more and more people around the world. With Spanish we can access a lot of communities in need of healthy edible gardens and social integration :)
It makes sense to garden in sync with mammaearth’s natural cycles! The closer we understand the cycles and rhythms, the inhaling and exhaling the more integrated and successful our man-made gardens will be.
Here’s a little newspaper link for starters. More on companion planting and poly-cultures later.

Time to order those fruit trees!
We love the Walcot Nursery. We’ve had a lot of success with fruit trees from this nursery. They are sturdy, excellent quality, cert. organic and importantly produce delicious fruit! See their website for ordering, planting and maintaining advice.

Wind warms, solar panels…the calcualtions and reality of renewable energy in the UK. Worthwhile to watch.
Edible gardening success story.
Thank you for all of the 10k Run donations. It was a successful run in spite of the weather! These donations will be used on the creation of a new edible sustainble garden in Glasgow for the use of the entire community. Your contribution has made such a difference already and enables us to get started! The support is invaluable. Love Mariposa x
Steph, Lauren, Roisin, Lynsey, Erin, Linda, Keira and Stella are running the 10k for Mariposa and for one or two other charities too.
To donate to Mariposa please click the above Donate button and money will be transfered to Mariposa’s Paypal Account and then transferred to our associated Mariposa bank account. Specifically funds raised from this run will be going to a new edible community garden in Possilpark, one of Glasgow’s poorest areas.
A big thankyou for supporting this Glasgow charity where 100% of your donation will go back into Glasgow projects.
Open until 13th May 2012
