Another year at Wiston
Posted by nonsavant on 12 March 2008
I ended my last entry, dated 30th December 2006, with the comment that my next entry would be headed 2007. As it turns out, here we are in March 2008! So I’ve got quite a lot of filling in to do, and I’m mainly going to post a lot of photos and a few paragraphs about what I’ve been up to for the past 13 months.
First few months at Wiston Lodge
Posted by nonsavant on 30 December 2006
It’s been a couple of months since I updated this diary, and I’d just left Orkney to do some more volunteering. Well, I came straight to a place called Wiston Lodge and have been here almost 3 months now.
Round-up of Summer 2006
Posted by nonsavant on 21 October 2006
After a summer of neglect, this diary is wildly out of date. One of the main reasons for this is that I’ve not been doing much volunteering, but have been working and generally doing other things. Here’s a summery summary
More adventures on Eigg
Posted by nonsavant on 17 July 2006
Have been busy working on a redesign of the site, amongst other things, which is my excuse for not having posted a diary entry for almost 2 months! This entry will look back at my remaining time on Eigg at the end of April and start of May.
Back in Glasgow after Knockengorroch
Posted by nonsavant on 17 June 2006
Have been down in Glasgow for over a month, re-letting my flat, but that is nearly sorted and I’ll be heading off somewhere in the near future.
On the Isle of Eigg
Posted by nonsavant on 25 April 2006
Arrived on Eigg on Saturday 15th April, so have been here a bit over a week now. I’m volunteering for Bob and Norah, who are renovating the old hunting lodge here. They intend to create an environmental education centre that will demonstrate sustainable building techniques and host courses on related subjects.

I returned from Pitnacree last Sunday, and leave for Eigg tomorrow morning. This post will cover my second month with Jacqui in Pitnacree.
Herbalist’s Garden at Pitnacree
Posted by nonsavant on 8 March 2006
Just under a month ago, I left Edinburgh and got back on the road to doing some more permaculture-related volunteering. Pitnacree is just off the A9 towards Aberfeldy, and I’m staying with Jacqui and family at the Herbalist’s Garden.

I’ve been in Edinburgh for about 4 weeks, staying with friends and helping with some DIY. I’m writing this on the train back to Glasgow. It’s 11:45am and there’s a guy drinking a can of Tennant’s opposite; Monday mornings can be tough for some.

Returned from Scoraig to Glasgow on Friday 23rd to spend Christmas with my family, here in Bishopbriggs.
