Eco Arts blog coming to you from Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.

Eco Arts | Eco Arts blog coming to you from Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.

The Frugaldom garden reflects our on-going attempts at home-based self-sustainability. It is from here that we should derive both income and food. It is an environment within which we can relax and enjoy a simple and frugal lifestyle, surrounded by the fruits of our own labours. The garden is being created as a microholding, or tiny smallholding, while following the basic principles of permaculture. But it has an artistic twist by way of the fact that we host an eco arts project.

One project that H has been contemplating for a long time was the making of a driftwood horse that can take pride of place in the garden. He was inspired by the magnificent sculptures of Heather Jansch and began gathering up bits of driftwood over a year ago. The fine Easter weather presented a perfect opportunity to finally put all of the foraged driftwood to good use, recycling it into a ‘living’ sculpture.
