Cancer and a greener life…

Cancer and a greener life…

This is not meant to be a depressing article in any way and I am by no means a scientist (nor is this article based on anything but my personal thoughts) but I can’t help but question what on earth is going on!? Why is everyone getting cancer? A few years back I didn’t know … Continue reading

Vegan Update: 6 months on

How does your garden grow?

How does your garden grow?

A few months back my daughter came home with a tiny broad bean plant she’d planted at school. They had planted it in some soil inside a pot fashioned out of newspaper – very ingenious. We placed it on our kitchen window sill (a nice sunny spot) and kind of just left it, or rather, … Continue reading
