We’ll soon be knee deep in the fun of building a Water Reed (cut to provide thatching) bed to take all foul waste overflow and some overflow from a new grey water system. Water from this will then go through an osier bed.
This system will replace the present soak away once we have collected sufficient funds to do it all in “one go”. This is new to us, but having seen the involved system at the Earth Centre, U.K., we are looking for a simpler way about it with less plastic piping and formality.
As now is the time to grow the osier and the Water Reeds, ready for use, does anyone know a UK supplier of Water Reed – the type used for thatching that lasts longer than other thatching materials. At this stage, I don’t know the right species name to use when searching for the Reed. Anyone out there with any know-how > let us know, thank you

“WATER LORE”, is an ongoing project, hosted by the Charity ‘World of Water’, to trace and record the evolving role of water in developing and maintaining communities.
Today, where water is ‘on tap’,
it is rarely seen as ‘life-giving’
and held in any reverence.
It is however the key to life as we know it, and interestingly enough we still get rather excited whenever our space explorers find water ‘out there’.
Hundreds of people have contributed their stories, photographs, diagrams and notes to the ‘Water Lore’ Project.
You can contribute:
Please keep contributing, as we hope that on publication, ‘Water Lore’ will help to re-build and strengthen the respect and caring we all instinctively have for the sheer wonder of living water and the life it supports.
If you want to get involved in this project or would like some more details, contact me.
Those who care, make Waves.
