Pig Fodder

The pigs have done a brilliant job of turning over their original field. So much so that we have to fence another two fields for them to work over. This field that they expertly rotavated with their snouts will be planted in the next couple of weeks with a pig grazing mix from Woodhead Seeds. It's a mix of cocksfoot, chicory, timothy grass, white clover and rye grass. A very good supplement to their diet.

Let there be Light

Spent a bit of time up at Low Parkamoor this week getting it ready for the summer bookings. It's looking really rather lovely but we still need to find a good, inexpensive and eco lighting system, bearing in mind there is no electricity up there. Paraffin lamps get broken very easily (on average one glass chimney gets smashed per booking), candles are a bit of a fire risk and wind-up lamps don't last very long or give off much light. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

When Web Designers Make Gardens

On a rare and well-deserved break from hard code last year, web guru Dorian planted up this bed in front of the artists residency at LP.

Can anyone draw any parallels between this lovely block of native foxglove (digitalis purpurea) and the Internet?!

RIBA prize!

We're totally thrilled to announce that Grizedale Arts HQ Lawson Park has won one of the region's prestigious Royal institute of British Architects awards!

Congratulations to us, everyone who worked on the building and of course to Sutherland Hussey architects for their inspirational design.

Here's a short film starring the Sutherlands that we made a few years ago shortly after the building relaunch...

Wedding Bells for Ben

Ben (the guy in the white T) and stags

Ben Sadler, aka one bit of Juneau projects, survived a recent stag night at Parkamoor with his mates, before getting married to the lovely Katy. We fed them a sunny brunch to see them on their way back home to Brum after whatever stags do in an offgrid house up a hill....

Congratulations to them both from all of us at Grizedale Arts...
