Well since then, things have gathered a bit of steam. Another concerned blogger, Julie @ Go Greener Australia, has whipped up a dedicated website called (you guessed it), Kev’s Patch. As she is a web designer by trade, it looks very professional and has managed to get the graphic done for free! Have a look at this new site at this address; http://kevspatch.wordpress.com Pretty flash, and well done Julie and thanks for joining the campaign.
Also, Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth has also joined in the fun. She has re-established a veggie patch in the grounds of Buckingham Palace. You can have a look at the article from the Guardian titled, “Queen turns corner of palace backyard into an allotment”.
And have a video tour of the Queen’s allotment by watching this video. I know that she has a team of gardeners to work the plot for her, but it is the simple act of her requesting it is what counts. I hope she enjoys her first batch of tomatoes from her own backyard just like I did!
I suppose the next step for our little band of eco-gardeners is to promote the campaign via the media and get others interested. Should be a fun journey!
If any one else is interested in getting involved with Kev’s Patch, let us know via the site.
