'Earth was abundant. When we had finally finished plundering its
resources, we moved on. But our new homes were never as rich.
So we sent ships with scientific teams to find new zoology in distant galaxies we could farm, synthesise or simply hunt down and eat...'


In the future, food is the new gold...




Join the crew of an Ark class spaceship as they search out new food resources across uncharted galaxies in order to keep humanity alive... (click here)

 Grove Jones stops on the main gangway of the space port and glances at the briefing alert on his digi-billet. The ship he is looking for is called the 'Saturn Anne II' but he can see no sign of it on the computerised docking list boards. Just like the Newtrishia Corporation to hire some tin-can space barge that can't even find its way to the right docking bay. He spots a techanoid and waves the billlet at him. 'Know where this is?'
The teachanoid blinks twice and then pulls the rictus grin of the very poorly made synthetic robot. 'Yes sir! The last bay, in late last night. Boards not updated yet. Very big ship. Have a very happy journey now.'

'Last bay, late. Says it all.' Jones growls in thanks at the too-cheery reply, shoulders his backpack and heads in the direction of the illuminated arrow sign lit up on the techanoid's chest plate.

In A Midsummer Garden

One of the first projects for our new garden, after a few months of settling in, is repairing, repainting and re-utilising the decking. This has entailed cutting back and reshaping overgrown shrubs and plants, checking and replacing any rotten substructure and replacing worn out screws across the deck. We are going for a bold grey, pink and orange colour scheme on the deck and walls to give a Mediterranean/Mexican feel to what is turning into a lovely sun trap. The pots of salad are loving the hot weather and midsummer is only a heat haze away. Please don't forget to leave out a shallow dish of water for the birds and wildlife, always a must in a midsummer garden.
