2nd prize was a Rapanui Eco-Tee, with the winner being Barbara Staples of Birmingham
3rd prize was a pair of Rananui socks, and Rosemarie Moore of Essex won those.
It is encouraging to see more and more companies with sustainable ethics coming to the permaculture community and offering our readers the chance to win great prizes, or receive fab money saving offers. Again, see the current issue for details of offers which take in green energy deals, the Just Do It DVD documentary, as well as our own 25% OFF offer on permaculture books.
The Lodsworth Larder
Finally, woodsman Ben Law's building The Lodsworth Larder has won its 9th award, this time as was part of The Telegraph's annual Best Small Shops in Britain Awards (this link is an inspiring look at all the winners). The Larder was chosen as the Best Corner Shop by Paul Davies, The Telegraph's assistant editor. Paul sites the Larder as being "unique among our winners in that its aim is not to make a profit, but to make life easier and better for the people who live near it. This is more than a lovely shop in a lovely village. It's an embodiment of civic pride."
If you know of any permaculture projects that have won an award then please do share that with us. We are happy to hear about any success stories from the UK, USA and indeed worldwide.
