Water day

In Lisbon at the Festival we also had a meeting with Nuno and his twin sister Filipa. Nuno wants to join our community and do Permaculture. We think it is a good idea and he decided to join us when we returned to Sabóia yesterday night. Today he is working with the water tank crew (without water no Permaculture, see?) and they are now applying an impermeable layer by the name of Superflex. Meanwhile Joke who arrived from Holland last week and Heather were trying to convince Lupo of the advantages of having a bath, and Peta was doing something similar with our olives. They need to be crushed, washed and marinated before they are edible.

    Well, if you’re doing permaculture, I hope you remember my lovely Feijoas which can give a windbreak to exposed ares and provide a delicious fruit in the late autumn and winter. Plants are currently 6€ each or 500€ per hundred for 2yr old plants. They grow to 2-4m high and can be planted 2-3m apart for a windbreak. Delivery cost is one night free accommadation and meals for two dancers in the wind.

    See Wikipedia for more info on Feijoas. A commercially grown plant will cost 12-15€ in Portugal, 25 pounds each in england. From my experience since 1990 the cultivated ones are no better than those I grow from seed.

    Love, Badal
