Welkom aan al ons nuwe RSG intekenaars! Dit is heerlik om ook soms op Afrikaans te klets.
My converted pool seems to have been a hit this month as a nifty response to stage 3 water restrictions in the Cape. I spoke on the radio about it, and long conversations have been had. All is of course a work in progress and this is already a journey of 3 years. I am certainly happy that I can go away and my veggie seedlings remain watered.
I also carry buckets full of this nutritious water to my fruit and nut trees. A live ecosystem has become the middle point of my emerging food forest. Little paradise fish add nutrients to feed the plants, whilst they eat the algae and keep the pool clean. Plant roots filter the water.
It is a long story which I will tell in full during the coming month. I think it’s fun to turn your response to environmental crises into creative games. There’s always another plan to be made – innovative living outside the old box keeps life interesting.

We have learned so much the past month about women’s breast health. I hope to see some of you at our natural breast care events in Somerset West and Cape Town. Contact me for details if you don’t have them. Follow the Hummingbird Centre on Facebook and of course the Green Times too!
