A few pictures from a great weekend in Jondal at the Hardanger Academy for Peace, Development and Environment
A few pictures of edibles in the garden of the flat we stayed in in Jondal!
…and the last set of pictures is from a trip to the Folgefonna glacier, only 35 mins to drive from sea level at Jondal to the ski lifts for summer skiing! The pictures are mostly of edible plants seen right next to the ski centre!

I remember many years ago walking with a Norwegian colleague in the mountains in Scotland (Ben More). Seeing a snow patch a long way off our route he just had to go and touch it! Even though they are surrounded with the white stuff in winter, they really miss it in summer ;)
In Jondal to visit the Hardanger Academy in early August last year, dinner was almost ready, and my “driver” Eirik asks if I fancy a trip up to the glacier? It’s only half an hour’s drive….well we got back two hours later…and yes he had to touch the snow ;)
Here’s a few pictures from the drive!!
Did I mention that the Nordic Permaculture Festival will be in Jondal from 12th-15th July 2018?
It’s been announced that this year’s Nordic Permaculture Festival will be arranged between 12th and 15th July 2018 in Jondal at the Hardanger Academy for Peace, Development and Environment, which is located in western Norway next to the Hardanger Fjord in fantastic surroundings and not far from the famous Folgefonna glacier! About time then that I blogged about my visit there as part of the annual Perennialen (no. 3), arranged by Eirik Lillebøe Wiken of the Alvastien Permaculture LAND Centre on the other side of the fjord. On the first day of Perennialen III, Eirik took me on aday trip, first to the famous garden at Baroniet Rosendal and then on to Jondal. A blog about the visit to Rosendal will follow tomorrow!
