One of the many effects of the Corona Virus has been to bring into sharp focus the fragility of our current global food production and distribution systems – shortages and queues in our supermarkets and shops for even basic food items have shown that there is a fundamental need to redesign the way that we feed ourselves and our communities. Part of the solutions-based picture is about re-localising food production and learning how to grow more of our own produce in our own gardens, allotments or whatever spaces are available to us: Just think how much food growing land is potentially available, and the possible contribution to the health, well-being and sustenance of our society we could all make if only we had the land and skills!
We have therefore decided to make the newly revised and reprinted edition of ‘Top of the Crops – How to make Your Edible Garden Grow’ available as a free PDF download for the duration of the COVID-19 Lockdown period in the hope that folks will find it a useful and empowering beginners guide, building confidence and encouragement to play a part in the food security solution – another world IS possible!
(NB. Printed copies of Top of the Crops are also available here, including options for bulk orders for community groups, COVID-19 Local Support Groups, etc – it would be great if you could support us and spread the word!)
For obvious reasons we couldn’t do a physical launch event for this new publication, so here’s our socially isolated video launch event from Spiralseed HQ which we hope you enjoy!
Stay safe and happy gardening, Graham Burnett, Spiralseed
