Grow Your Own on a Budget - Seed Saving
This is an honest and inspiring interview by Madeline Mckeever of Brown Envelope Seeds in Cork and a great example of how you can turn your life around by opening up your mind http://silvercircle.ie/voices/620-saving-the-seeds.html.
We started our veggie garden on a shoestring - there were weeks when even a bag of compost was too expensive, and weed membrane and wind break fabric were a distant dream. We've always tried to re-use/recycle as much as we can - our beds are edged with old roof joists from the house renovation. You don't need a big budget to grow veggies, just be prepared to let people know you'll take their rubbish!
