Clinton brought along a snake for us to see and handle and explained how important snakes such as the rat snake are for farmers and gardeners to keep the rat populations under control.
Along with his wonderful organic garden Darryl has initiated many other projects such as rain water harvesting, irrigation and waste management.
A true ambassador for a sustainable living, Darryl is the kind of role model we need for our children. As a teacher, he leads by example encouraging his students to not only listen, but to engage themselves in the process and make a connection with nature.
I can't thank Darryl and his team enough for todays unforgetable experience.
On the way home the girls insisted that we stop off at a garden centre. They both just love walking through the maze of plants and trees.
R bought a miniature lime tree and K chose some lemon grass. Added to the plants they potted at Darryl's they arrived home inspired and ready to create their own terrace garden.
We look forward in the near future to making our own wormery and helping Darryl with his new aquaponics project so watch this space for more greenfingered adventures!
Have to go now...R has just made me a cup of lemongrass tea...mmmm.
