Fundraising plays a major part in operating a project such as Frugaldom. As a fledgling social enterprise that plans to offer the freedom to explore the area, go foraging and observe nature, there are few opportunities for generating income on site, but we do have something to offer our friends, followers and supporters - Frugal Breaks, Artwork, Holidays and Life Experiences.

Have you ever wondered what it must be like to be so single-minded and focussed on your goals that you actually achieve them all, one by one, consistently? Or do you go about things in a half-baked manner wondering where all your time has gone, forgetting half of what you should have done?

March 2019 marks 20 years since the set-up of our original Scottish Writers group, many of whose members helped create and publish 'Lanarkshire News' (Scotland's first completely online newspaper), 'Now You Know' (in print and online), and 'Paranoid Times' (in print and online). Although we have moved away from printing newspapers, our writing and publishing projects continue. This year, we begin the barn blogging project to run alongside Ecoarts, at Frugaldom.

Recently, I have been mulling over the problem of how to fit my writing into busy days spent at Frugaldom and I came to the conclusion that the best solution was to create a quiet space where I can write, in between planting, pony care and project development, at the barn. This is my first post detailing my journey to becoming a barn blogger.

Mothering Sunday in the UK is 31st March 2019, the same date the clocks spring forward into British summertime. Mother's Day gifts can include anything from home grown flowers to handmade cards and freshly baked goods but if you would prefer to splash out a bit, there are plenty of other options. My suggestion for this year is a weekend break for mum.

Almost anyone can be an entrepreneur; the only thing missing for many is a great idea. The best place to find a great business idea is to look into something about which you are passionate, for example, if you’re passionate about nature, there are plenty of business ideas with which you can run!

Methane is 8 times more Powerful as a Greenhouse Gas Than Carbon Dioxide

It's been some time since 'Paranoid Times' first appeared but sadly failed to launch in print after we found ourselves indirectly affected by a national crisis - the Foot and Mouth outbreak of 2001! Several years passed, we worked on silently, watching, reading, researching, monitoring, writing and publishing on behalf of others... now we are publishing some of our writers' submissions in blog format.

We're more than half way through February and despite the continuing winter weather, temperatures are starting to get above 6 Degrees C - this means the grass will begin growing and with that, everything else, too. It's time for me to plan the food gardens, prepare the growing spaces and  start sowing seeds!
