I am so overwhelmed by this calendar and hope that my mother-in-law will be just as excited about it. And I will try to maintain my calendar together with my grandma. Am very excited to see how it will evolve over the years. Props to you and the three authors.
Great calendar for any gardener and those who want to be. Sounds interesting in any case. I am curious.
"Playful, light and sustainable: climate saving (is) also possible in your own garden."
I am quite excited about the calendar
"The Perma Calendar ... stands for sustainability and outstanding design. It's a shining example of how good graphic design is able to explain the interconnectedness of nature-whether it's on a windowsill or in the forest."
Such a great idea with the calendar.
A great project!
The Perma Calendar is your blueprint for an insect-friendly garden, balcony or backyard.
This is how we developed and financed the sustainable calendar:
With crowdfunding, we were able to convince over 250 nature lovers to finance the Perma Calendar. We produced it as sustainably as possible, with eco inks on 100% recycled paper, right around the corner in Erlangen.
The perma calendar is a garden planner, non-fiction book and birthday calendar all in one - a true all-round package. Oriented on the structure of the phenological calendar, it invites you to observe and document. Phenological seasons are not nailed down to a specific date, but are different every year, depending on the onset of developments in the surrounding nature. You can recognize them with the help of so-called indicator plants.
As often as you like, if desired also each individual day, you can note your observations, note findings and immortalize temperatures and weather. The calendar is designed for three years, which you can choose freely - they do not have to be consecutive years.
So you can easily compare climate & conspicuities over the years. In addition, the calendar offers you enough space to note other special events, such as the birthday of your loved ones, or even when you planted which plant or sowed seeds.
Climate change affects us all! But where do I start? Exactly, it's best to start by sweeping your own front door - on your terrace or balcony.
To help your "green thumb" on the jump, you will find in the Perma calendar for each season proven tips & tricks from gardening expert Sabine, which make your gardening life easy.
When the garden has gone quiet in the winter, it is the best time to start planning for the coming gardening year.
