Grow Your Own on a Budget – Seed Saving

March 25, 2010

I’m just sharing a link to an honest and inspiring interview by Madeline Mckeever of Brown Envelope Seeds in Cork. It’s a great example of how you can turn your life around by opening up your mind.

We started our veggie garden on a shoestring – there were weeks when even a bag of compost was too expensive, and weed membrane and wind break fabric were a distant dream.

We’ve always tried to re-use/recycle as much as we can – our beds are edged with old roof joists from the house renovation.

You don’t need a big budget to grow your own vegetables, just be prepared to let people know you’ll take their rubbish!
