I started this site in 2017 as a place to keep my soil and permaculture notes in the hope that one day should I have access to land that I’ll remember some of it. It’s also a place to expand on my thoughts. A lot of my posts are inspired by research papers I read and videos I watch along with the compulsion to expand on comments I might not normally leave.

I do this as a hobby. I decided to take up gardening in 2015 after reading research about quality of life that showed gardeners and those in horticulture were the most content and that it could help those with mental illness. I can’t say it has helped me but the complexities of soil ecosystems have kept my mind occupied… some of the time.
