Permaculture Magazines

I have a pile (40cm high) of 'Permaculture Magazines' starting with the first ever published in the Autumn of 1992, all the way up until No 103 of this year (Spring 2020). As far as I can see the only one missing is no 2.
Due to downsizing I am no longer able to keep them..... Is anybody interested?
I feel certain they deserve to be shared rather than recycled! Phone if you can put them to use and provide them a new home. They can be collected from Seaton in Devon. (advertised elsewhere too)

Get Involved with The Rekalibrator

Having collected feedback from a wide section of the public, it can be said with confidence, that The Rekalibrator produces health benefits for the people who use it (Healthy mind = Healthy person).

It seems only right, therefore, to get The Rekalibrator to more locations, as is suggested by some of the feedback, in this way both people and the planet would benefit.

Community farm in Dorset wants to grow!

Shaftesbury Home Grown, often referred to as ‘the Community Farm’, was established more than 10 years ago. Currently, members grow fruit and vegetables and keep chickens and bees, getting a discount on produce taken. A review of past experience, the boost in activity at the farm during the pandemic, and national concerns about food security, led the group to decide to explore using the land more effectively and playing a larger part in Shaftesbury’s community. What additional land-based projects might run alongside the farm’s core activities?
