a clean (yet muddy!) slate

It all began here. I fell in love with the view of the beautiful Malvern Hills. And when I found out that there was a teaching classroom with cosy wood-burner and a compost loo on the site…it was a done deal.

The plot is our little piece of Colwall Village Garden, that was established in 2011. Pestle & Daughter are the guardians of one of 60 plots, all of which have their own unique and colourful character, tended by an eclectic mix of locals of all ages and experience.

We feel privileged to be a part of this family-friendly place, which embodies community spirit. People here share tools, seed, skills and knowledge… hopefully our plot will become an abundant addition and the plants will provide forage for bees and ingredients for many a potion!

The beautiful Malvern Hills are the backdrop to our patch of earth

Once the clearing and mulching has happened, the days begin to lengthen; we start dreaming, seed sowing and sourcing plants…
