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.

Frugaldom is located approximately 10 miles from Newton Stewart, less than a mile from the Three Lochs Holiday Park, where we offer self-catering caravan accommodation for guests attending any of our events.

Today we are making raw apple cider vinegar. It's been quite some time since we picked our apples and the harvest, although not yet including much from the new orchard, was plentiful. Many apples were given to friends and relatives, many more were stewed for sauce, crumbles and pies and yet more were turned into jelly with a combination of foraged berries and blackcurrants. The remaining apples are stored in black bags outside, chilled by the good old Scottish, winter weather.

Following a frugal regime during winter is never easy. It doesn't matter what anyone thinks or who agrees or disagrees with our lifestyle choices, it's always around February that we could happily crank up the heating and throw extra logs on the fire... or else pack up and head for warmer, drier climes!

Frugaldom the place, Frugaldom the project, Frugaldom the experience... we're planning out first FRUGALFEST!

15 Years down the road and round the bend but not quite over the hill... Our satirical 'Woman Zone' columns first appeared in print in 1999. Those responsible for the rants, raves and ramblings included Shona Prophett, the Bishop, Rosemary, Eddie Elwood, Jordan, Millie May, Agnes and Senga... names that many of you may recognise and characters some of you met.

Sunday saw some frugal activity out at the Frugaldom Project. With around 600 trees to plant, including 420 from the Woodland Trust, Sunday gave us the perfect opportunity to get some serious work done.

The latest Frugaldom Project officially came into being on 8th July, 2014. This can be thought of as a 'members go free' virtual eco tour where you can experience Frugaldom for yourself, watch it develop from it's absolute beginnings and contribute or take part whenever you like.

1st - 7th September 2014 is Zero Waste Week and, as expected, Frugaldom is taking part in recycling, upcycling, repurposing and reusing in a bid to cut waste and save money.
