To plant a Herb and Food Garden to make use of valuable water is the most logical way to go” She says.  So much knowledge has been lost over the last century and especially now, people need to get back to learning to look after themselves as nature intended. Bridget hails from a farming background in Dorset, England. Her mother had an enormous herb, fruit tree and veggie garden and she says she has no clue how her mother managed it all by herself.   Very little was ever bought at the greengrocer as a result!
