Druidry for the 21st Century: Pandora’s Box and Tools for the Future
The story of Pandora’s box has always been a favorite of mine, ever since I was little. Pandora was so curious. She just had to open the box. She just had to. And when she did, she let out all the bad things in the world: suffering, pain, war, famine, pestilence, betrayal….but she also let out one good thing: she let out hope.
I think when we start talking about the present and the future of the world-its kind of like being inside Pandora’s Box. It seems that more and more reports come out, more and more news comes out, and the longer that things go on, we keep being surrounded by all the bad things. Ten or fifteen years ago, perhaps these things could be ignored. But today, I don’t think there is any more time for that. The reports, like the recent National Climate Assessment, don’t often…

The Bee Friendly Trust transforming station platforms into habitats for honeybees to thrive
The Bee Friendly Trust is transforming railway station platforms and other neglected sites in the UK into forage-full habitats in which honey bees and other pollinators can thrive.
The Bee Friendly Trust works with railway authorities, volunteers and schools to provide a network of flowering habitats for honeybees. They build planters and create mini orchards on railway station platforms, solar farms and other land – filling the planters with bee-friendly flowers to form pollinator corridors across urban centres and beyond.
Honeybee numbers have been steadily declining in the UK, mainly due to habitat loss, climate change, toxic pesticides and disease. Yet without them, around a third of the food people eat wouldn’t exist.
The Bee Friendly Trust say: “We want to create a world where honeybees and other pollinators have the habitats they need in order to thrive, and in which individuals and communities feel inspired and empowered to nurture…

Little Lavenders in the Landscape
Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs
As spring approaches we get anxious to start planting our garden! In March, we have time to plan which lavenders we want to add or replace in our garden. In late March and into April and May, after the weather and the ground have warmed up, we can usually tell which lavenders need to be replaced. After we do spring garden pruning and clean up, we have a better idea of how much space we have to plant. There are also more lavender plants available from local growers at that time of the year.
English lavenders, Lavandula angustifolia cultivars, are the hardiest lavender plants to grow, but eventually, they do need to be replaced with new plants. Some lavender plants that are over 10 to 15 years old are very woody and parts of these plants may no longer produce new leaves or flowers. As long as a garden space…
