Remember When life was so much easier

Life has been so busy with raising children, running a business,working fulltime you sometimes forget the simple things in life. Remember how things were when you were younger. Today there is so many chemicals and additives added into our everyday items. This year our family is trying to llive a more natural life. This blog will contain recipes, gardening tips, links to other blogs who share the same passion as I do.

Winter Solstice

Last night we were part of the Winter Solstice Celebrations at Northey Street City Farm.  Even though it was a couple days late it was an amazing night.  So why do we celcebrate the Solstice?  Winter Solstice is celebrated on the shortest day of the year which then means it is the longest night of the year.  For the solstice it is now the turning point.  The days get longer and the nights get shorter until the Summer Solstice.  From the dark womb of the night, the light is born.

If you have never been to Northey Street City Farm you are definitely missing out on an amazing community space.  Even though I live at Redcliffe I love heading to the Farm.  It transform you to another place. 

It is a Urban Permaculture Community Farm which promotes and practices substainablity in our environment.  A place that is stress free and open to the community to enjoy.  I love visiting.  To think on the other side of the gardens is a busy bustling major city.  By the way the place is run by some amazing people.

You can stroll through the amazing gardens or you can join one of the many tours.  They also have loads of different workshops running through out the year.

Last night hundreds and hundreds of people gathered in the celebrations with great entertainment, fantastic food and live bands playing.  It was a cool night but my pixie coat I made certainly kept me warm.

Stilt Walkers

Fire Twirlers


And definitely some fantastic music.

If you are ever in the area of Windsor do stop in and pay a visit to the farm.  Or click on the Link here to their Facebook Page or their web page.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend people.  Today some gardening.
