Gardening for Wildlife

This is a good time to collect seaweed. Easy vehicular access to Marazion Beach and all you need are a few bags and a pair of rubber gloves. A mixture of seaweed and leaves makes a brilliant garden mulch.

Wildlife Tip! Cold snaps are here! Look out for flocks of Golden Plover and Lapwings when the temperature drops. 

Berriman’s, our local farm shop on the Leedstown road, is now stocking milk from Trink Dairy. This is what they say about it: ‘This milk is from Friesian and Jersey cows that graze the sweet, lush grass at Trink Farm, just outside St Ives. Owned and run by the Knowles family who proudly nurture both land and cows to ensure this milk tastes as it should, smooth, wholesome and full of dairy goodness. Non-homogenised and gently pasteurised’.
