JB's @ The Limetree Festival

If you've never been to The Limetree Festival before then you've been missing out. This is one festival you certainly won't want to skip in 2011. If you're getting a little tired of the big ticket prices of the larger festivals, want something a bit more intimate, a weekend where you can actually see the headline performers without the need for binoculars, somewhere with an environmental conscience and a family friendly funky vibe, then book your tickets and head on up (or down) to Grewelthorpe (near Ripon) this August. JB's will be there, in the heart of the festival ground, offering some of the finest jazz, blues, funk and world music. The provisional lineup for JB's tent includes some superb bands that you may or may not have seen before including..



Dioon edule

Plant a Cycad is a group of local farmers that specialize in Cycads, Palms, and other drought tolerant plants.
Collectively we offer more than 50+ years of farming experience and we're not shy sharing our knowledge.
This website is new, but we're not. Check back often; you'll find a lot of new and exciting features within the next few months. Including a community bulletin board for the farmers growing similar species.
Plant a Cycad is owned by the farmers, maintained by the farmers, and built for all the farmers like you.

People mistake me for a palm tree. I'm a Cycad also known as a Dioon edule. I'm a living fossil that dates back thousands of years. My family is originally from Mexico, but they've since migrated throughtout the world and even into your own backyard.
I'm a conifer similar to the pine trees you already know. I love the sun, but will adjust to almost any living condition (with a few exceptions). Currently I'm looking for a good home where I can sit under the sun and talk about the old days.
Grow your own Cycad today. Plant a Cycad has starter kits available to help guarantee your growing success. Ask me how?
Check back often for updates or email your special requests


Limetree festival 2011

Goldenseed are proud to be one of the official sponsors of this superb event in 2011

The Limetree Festival is a 3 day music & arts festival set amongst the beautiful surroundings of Limetree Farm nature reserve at Grewelthorpe near Ripon.
We have created a new annual event that focuses on returning to how festivals used to be before they became these big corporate enterprises that they are today.
With so few festivals in the north and those that there are, tend to be highly commercial
and expensive. We want to offer people something different.
Last year's event was a great success and earned a nomination for best new festival at the UK Festival Awards 2008.

The next event will be held on 26-28 July 2011
Just arrive, relax and enjoy a festival how it should be.
