Growing Green

Thanks to Beatrice for passing on the details of the Green Parent writing competition. They're looking for articles of between 500 and 2,500 words on the theme of natural parenting. 

There's publication and £150 for the winner. 10 runners up will also be published with 'a hearty byline'. (I'll be interested to see how much more substantial that is compared to the regular kind.)

As well as pregnancy, childbirth and education, suggested topics are alternative health, sustainable lifestyles, green travel and gardening.

  7. I use a clothesline and have a garden, does that count? Probably not, but it's a neat idea.

    1. If you use them, then I'm sure they must count, Elizabeth.
