In July 2019 we moved to a house with wild, and untended gardens. We are working to transform the gardens and plot into a Humble Haven, areas for organically grown fruit and veg, herbal areas to grow the herbs used in our products, wild flower areas to promote natural biodiversity and support bees, butterflies…

Every day in the garden is a day of discovery, we’ve found a long abandoned pond, now revived and teeming with newts, tadpoles, pond-scaters and water beetles.

Swallows, house martin’s and bats take turns in performing aerial acrobatics.

Frogs and toads provide natural “pest” control, companion planting helps everything develop in harmony.

The images below are a snapshot of our work to make this little part of Cumbria green, diverse and wonderfully productive
