  • Description

    Description

    I am Sarah and I live with my husband Rodney, he is retired from earning a living and is thoroughly enjoying studying ( Buddhist way of life mostly) and having time and peace. I am an advisor for Plants for wildlife/biodiversity/ gardening with nature in mind/living and gardening with a small footprint/ and provider of peace/nature/garden days from our own garden ( which is an National Garden Scheme garden). We have a delightful cottage garden with large pond with summer house, large veg garden and other individual gardens within the garden. Our children, five of them have all grown up and live away - some of them have even kindly hatched out some babes for us to play with!
    We enjoy peace and quiet having fun, friends, music, films, box sets, books, knowledge and our food! Which is yummy and comforting, at home we are animal product free cooks, we enjoy having a small footprint and not using sprays/chemicals inside or out.
    I am a pony warden at a local heath. I also monitor various species ie rivers, bees, butterflies, moths, bats, fungi, lichen, plants, beetles, reptiles.
