The Almanac has received a perfect message of support from Arne Maynard, which I thought I would share as I am so delighted, being a huge admirer of Arne's garden designs and general approach to life (see his beautiful Allt-y-bela, above, photo by William Collinson). Arne says:
“We have lost touch with our traditional festivals and natural timings of the year, many of which aid our gardening and govern when we sow, plant and harvest. Moreover, it is these festivals that give us, as gardeners and custodians of the land, the opportunity to celebrate our climate and landscape by bringing people together socially, linking the land and the community. Lia’s book sounds like a wonderful guide for us to reestablish these traditions and promote a feeling of ‘togetherness’ in our gardening endeavours. I look forward to reading and using it.”
Arne has also donated a signed copy of his own book The Gardens of Arne Maynard to be used as a reward, a glorious book that I love. You will find it now on the rewards page, bundled with a copy of the Amanac and a signed copy of my own Twilight Garden, all three for £50. This is a one off so snap it up if you fancy it.
The crowdfunder is now at 88% funded, so deliciously close! Please keep on shouting about it on social media and telling your grannies, uncles, cousins and friends, anyone who you think might love a copy. Thank you!
