Lets Restore It
For decades we have dumped the finest of quality furniture in skips and replaced it with often lesser quality items. This practice of discarding items that sometimes only need a little bit of repair work drives deforestation and over-exploitation and is not sustainable in light of increasing demands as populations grow.
Over the coming months you will be invited to join me in my workshop to repair and restore items such as chairs, tables, etc – see example SWAY presentation on this page. We believe that in order to meet the spirit of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration we also need to apply BURT’s 8 Principals of INFINITY-Repair-Refurbish-Restore-Replant-Refuse-Reuse-Reimagine-Replant.
You will also be invited you to accompany me as I go about enhancing my wildlife garden to meet the best-known practice of making it truly pollinator-friendly in the least human interventionist way possible.

We can start in our own patch – wheather that is a balcony in a high-rise apartment in the middle of the city, a small garden in a council estate in the middle of town or a derilect patch of ground in a village – we can all do our bit.
