Nyrees Titchener - Main Profile

The Blackberry is the symbol of our permaculture group, i know it can be a pain for gardeners but its resilience is to be admired. I have seen plants covered in rust and recover. I have seen them covered in Blackfly and still have branches buckle under the weight of tonns of fruit. I love the way such a ferocious plant enables little birds to fly right inside and gives them protection and food. Indeed Much like people, if you want fruit you just let them grow.
We are an informal not for profit group exploring aspects of permaculture including ways of gardening and creating a sustainable,inclusive community. We love meeting people so if you would like to be involved ( a little or a lot!) Please get in touch through our contacts page.
