Great Hair and a Helluva Beard – but not Food Production as I Know It.
I came across this clip of a charming man, who is the Allotment Rep for an Allotment Garden in Bristol. He also runs a permaculture kitchen garden team serving pakora at the Glastonbury Festival, and some of you may have come across him there. I have a poor grasp of Permaculture, and doubtless I missed the full potential of everything his plot has to offer – but I just kept wondering, “Where’s the food?” And I wondered what he put in the pakora.
This man would obviously be able to survive in a famine while the rest of us faded away. But I for one, don’t fancy my chances against the birds, in the attempt to harvest hawthorn berries. And I don’t know if I would want to be on an adjoining allotment, although the craic would be good.
