Turning 50 seemed an auspicious time to begin a blog. Being a recentish recruit to the world of technology and still reluctant about many of it’s facets, it was quite a leap actually.  I do love writing though, so probably it is a giant step more than a leap – a natural progression, perhaps.

Plant Abundance will celebrate life with food.  Planting, wild plants, food growing, abundant living, local food, wild food, food heros, frugal luxury, harvest celebrations and  perhaps even dancing, as the “dance” bit of plantabundance seems to stand out now that I have written it down!

Michael Pollen provides the inspiration: Eat Food, Not too Much, Mostly Plants.  I add: Local and in Season. See the post Food Beautiful Food, too.

I write many stories that are not necessarily about food or my life, so I have another blog celebrating the KZN Midlands – it is called Midlands Mosaic.

    Hi Nikki,

    I heard about you via Wally Menne, who posted something of yours on the CJN network. Do you know Wally?

    Anyway, I’m always keen to network with like-minded people such as you, in that you’re doing food sovereignty and encouraging others to do the same.

    See my profile at linked-in and please get hold of me at leighcollingwood@hotmail.com.

    Hi Nikki,

    You have a lovely blog.
    I would like to ask your permission to use one of your photos.
    It is the photo of Verkykerskop.
    We are hosting a Retrofestival there sand would like to use the image for promotional purposes.

    Do let me know if that’s ok.

    Many thanks

    Hi Nikki, I’ve just read your blog about the egg demo – you all look fabulous in your bright yellow and orange clothes. I’m sure you must have inspired many people to think a bit more about what they are eating and the awful stressful conditions battery chickens have to endure to provide them with tastless eggs!
    Well done!
