Plants for a Future Appeal

Today, I’m indulging in a spot of reading. One thing leading to another I have thus ended up on the Plants for a Future website.

I believe this to be an important charity, as it enables people to select plants which are most appropriate for their environment and which tend to have edible and/or medicinal uses.

Unfortunately, the charity is in desperate need of funds to continue its good work. It is therefore asking for any donations which you can manage:

The weather isn’t so glaringly hot today – and once again we are waiting to see if it rains. In the meantime, here is a shot of a ewe and her lambs (just before they laid down in the shade, they had been suckling). They must be suffering in the heat but I’m glad they can stay together as a family.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    I use the PFAF database all the time as a reference for plant edibility and so on. I’ve chosen to make a small monthly donation since I do feel they deserve supporting. It’s easy just to take advantage of all the work that goes on without realising someone must pick up the tab. Ken Fern’s book of the same name is another dangerous one!
