HOMEMADE DRILL MAKER FOR LARGER KITCHEN GARDENS – 1st wk in April 2014

At a recent course run in Sonairte, the Eco-Visitor Centre, Laytown, Co. Meath, professional market gardener, Dermot Carey, introduced his students to hand-held machinery and other pieces of appropriate technology which reduce costs and maximise efficiency for the professional organic market gardener.

The picture shows a wooden drill maker which is simply dragged the length of the seedbed once the tilth is right before seed sowing. Dermot made this device when working as a grower on Inis Mor, the largest of the Aran Islands some years ago.
