It is that time of the year where I cycle about dumbfounded at the amount of organic seasonal locally produced food going to waste.
If you live in Hackney get your arse down to Sandbrook Road, N16 (just off Church Street). At the north end there is a wall dripping with grapes which I have never seen anyone else harvest. The photo below is from Googlemaps… imagine that whole wall overflowing with the good stuff.
It seems that in order to be a half credible permaculture project you need to have a soft fruit area so we cleared a bit of space in ‘The Glade’ as Racheal has now christened the woody bit of our patch and set to work making a new home for our gooseberry and raspberry plants.
