This calendar is a celebration of seasonal fruit and vegetables, beautifully illustrated with full page original hand carved linocut prints.
It promotes seasonal, and locally grown organic food and the benefits of connecting with nature. Each month offers advice and practical growing tips to help you plan the year from seed to harvest. A growing chart will also be included at the back of the calendar.
I have created this calendar with the wonderful grower Bryony Middleton, Head Gardener at Sharpham Trust in Devon, who manages their 19th Century Walled Vegetable Garden organically and the ornamental grounds.
Each month will include
- A full page illustration of seasonal fruit & vegetables. All the prints are form original designs, hand drawn then intricately carved into lino blocks.
- Tips and knowledge for the month, including what to sow and harvest.
- A Growing Chart will feature at the back, with an overview of the sowing and harvest schedule.
- Dates for the phases of the moon, bank holidays and seasonal festivals.
The calendar will have an organic look and feel, with a rich colour palette. The calendars are printed using eco inks on 100% recycled, textured light grey rustic paper from waste fibre. The folded size is 300 x 300 mm - hanging size 300 x 600mm, stapled on the fold, and a hole at the top for hanging.
