Building resilience, building relationships. The Permaculture Working Group is a new opportunity to explore Permaculture and related ecological design methodologies while more importantly creating new friendships, sharing knowledge and getting some experience putting the topics we explore to work on the land. Tricia Sharpe and Christopher Heffley will share the Permablitz model as a way of sharing skill sets and workload, as well as finding out what challenges people are most interested in exploring on their own sites.

1st session Wed Oct 11, 6:30pm, South Hall. Everyone Welcome ~ Donations gratefully accepted ~
