A Meaningful Garden - Tricia ~ Little Eco Footprints

t's been a little quiet around here of late - I'm still fresh outta words, with our big move last month requiring some rest and settling in from it seems. But, I am still around and I'll be back with new posts soon enough.

For now though, I'd love to welcome this month's A Meaningful Gardener. Tricia (one of my favourite 'bloggers' and Instagrammers) writes at little eco footprints about living a slower, simpler, lighter life - and I adore both her words and her photos (check out the #anhourinthegardeneachday hash tag on Instagram!). She is someone I often turn to for how-to's and advice, and I've been loving watching her journey in Permaculture this year as she's undertaken a Permaculture Design Certificate. Tricia walks her talk, and I know you will be inspired by the way she works with her garden, rather than trying to force it into something it's not.

I've been following Jean and Carly on Instagram and Facebook for a while now, and love the way that Carly captures their everyday moments. Her story below starts off in a way that is so similar to mine (well, minus the London and engineer bit anyway) and I love how she has woven the spirit of permaculture thoroughly into her beautifully productive garden.
