******Congratulations to Ceri who won the giveaway. The competition is now closed. Thank you to all who entered*****
To celebrate two years since we moved to the Half Acre Homestead here in Ceredigion, Wales and the start of my gardening courses here next weekend, I am running a giveaway – win one of our course vouchers (rrp £95)!
Two years in beautiful Wales
Those two years have flown by. When I moved here in March 2021 the garden was mostly weedy lawn with some established fruit trees and flower borders. Starting my first no dig bed on March 31st 2021, there are now productive veg beds which provide much of our plant based needs. The garden was featured on BBC Gardeners’ World in December 2022, with “a masterclass on how to grow a wide range of vegetables through all the winter months” Monty Don.
After the feature on Gardeners’ World Monty Don said about my garden and work here:
“Well that’s inspiring. I think everybody, even if we’ve grown vegetables all our lives, can learn something from that.“
My goal here is to produce 80% of our veg, fruit, herbs and edible flowers.
I am so excited to be hosting a series of courses here. The first two dates have sold out, and we are already receiving bookings from the United States – it’s an international gardening school! The homestead is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Wales, with mountains, waterfalls, beaches and ancient history close by.
