I have just returned from a most enjoyable day with members of our hearth, Freys Beacon Hearth, who met this time in the role of Guardians
Because edible plants were important to our ancestors, and will again become important to us, I seek to learn about the edible plants of my own odal lands here in North Carolina.

On the 22nd of August Members of Freys beacon OR hearth met up in the capacity of Guardians to clear litter in Storeton wood area of the Wirral peninsular, here in the Northwest of England.
Freysbeacon Guardians met up as planned for a clean up of the Wyre salt marsh in North west England. There was literally tons of rubbish which is brought in on a high tide, most of the rubbish was plastic drinks bottles in which we cleared hundreds from the area.
Frey’s Beacon Guardians will be meeting up at 1.00pm on the 8th of Lenting/March at Johnny’s house. From there we will travell by car’s to the Fernhill Pub in Preesall where we will then take a short walk to the Wyre Salt marshes on the coast. The area is really bad with litter, most of which seems to be plastic bottles. Please feel free to come along and join in.
