For my first feature this month I interview Sally Blackwell about her experiences as part of one of the member households in this year’s Greenest Neighbourhood season. We talk thermal envelope, pelmets, gardening and a developing sense of community in her neighbourhood.
For my second feature, I interview Steve Bright & Stacey Gasson. They talk about their ‘Edwards’ solar hot water system, the pros & cons (are there any?!), and what it has done to their power bill. An added point of interest is that this system is coupled with a wetback for winter heating.
Avant Gardener Hannah Zwartz talks about preparing for the next round of planting. Winter crops are going in the ground, burn off any diseased plants, and prune fruit trees for shape, watering with rainwater. We hear about the Sustainable Home & Garden Show on 21st & 22nd March. Lots of great workshops on there – tune in for the low-down!
