Pimms and Permaculture in Prestonpans

Take 3 guerrilla gardeners, some compost and mix together with Pimms until slightly squiffy, and you've got yourself a recipe for, well a bit of a laugh really.

Jan, Lucy Ann & Thea got together to create some seedbombs for future bombing missions.

How to make a seedbomb: 
Mix 1 part seeds (we used native non-invasive wildflower mix and added some sunflower seeds), 3 parts compost, 5 parts dry red clay (befriend a potter), 2 parts water.  Form into marble-sized pieces.  Dry in the sun for 24 hours (don't leave out overnight to get rained on like Jan did).  Lob!

How to make a Pimms Summer cup: 

Mix 3 parts lemonade, 1 part Pimms Number 1, add slices of cucumber, apple, orange, lemon and mint.  Pour.  Drink!
