Woman v Rabbit

Woman V Rabbit blog is written by Tabitha Fox and by the occasional guest blog writer. This blog combines my love of self-sufficiency, home growing and the stress of owning a free-range rabbit.  Life often gets very busy but Covid-19 has been the catalyst to get my garden growing again! 

I have been using this time in lockdown to define different areas of my garden, build new beds, grow food and be amazed at the diversity of wildlife that I am very lucky to have here.

This blog is designed to grow into a helpful source of information for anyone with a bit of space to grow veggies and an interest in sustainability.  Gardening on a shoestring, with optional power tools, hedgehogs, and eco-friendly toothbrushes. And to be quite frank, anything else that takes my fancy as I go through life. 

All my planter creations are made from repurposed and upcycled wood, delivered to me by my ‘wood fairies’

Sadly, my free-range rabbit Oliva has passed away, but her memory lives on and I will leave the original introduction of the Woman V Rabbit blog here as a memorial to her. "The rabbit works hard to ensure that I still buy veg from the supermarket, but… one day… my crops will be consumed by the humans they’re intended for"   "All my planter creations are specifically designed to be rabbit-proof."

Print less and Use Paper from Sustainable Sources

E-mail instead of Posting Letters if possible.

Nowadays most businesses will probably send the majority of their correspondence via e-mail instead of letters. However, there are likely still some things that get sent in the post just because ‘that’s how we’ve always sent them’. Perhaps documents that are too big to e-mail, or those that need a signature on them, although both …

Recycling Plastics and Paper at the Office

Recycling plastics and paper is something that we probably do at home without even thinking about it. We no doubt all have a plethora of recycling bins that we need to fill at home and somehow it just seems ‘easier’ to do than within our business, doesn’t it? Getting employees to put their recyclable waste …

Greta Thunberg: An exploration of character

‘When I was about eight years old, I first heard about something called climate change….I remember thinking that it was very strange that humans,…, could be capable of changing the earth’s climate. Because, if we were…, we wouldn’t be talking about anything else….But. No one talked about it. Ever….To me, that did not add up. …

The Cupboard of Good Intentions

I’m quite impressed with myself this time around because let’s face it; this is not my first cupboard of good intentions! But this one at least has products with a long shelf life, and they look pretty awesome in these jars. They were also pretty fun to buy as I found a cute little rustic shop …
